Hey! My name is Gavin and I'm a 19 year old college kid looking to form a 3-4 piece band with a lot of energy. I play mostly guitar and drums but also play bass, I write and can kinda sing. I'm mostly self taught but I've been playing both guitar and drums for about 6-7 years, and would be willing to play whatever instrument needs to be filled. My influences are generally based in punk rock, but my taste spans fairly wide and am open to playing with people from a variety of influence. Band influences include Jawbreaker, Minor Threat/Fugazi, At the Drive-In, Gaslight Anthem, Descendents, AJJ, early Smiths, and Husker Du. I also enjoy music ranging from death/thrash, electronica, anything garage or snobby, so on. I'd want to be practicing at least once a week, if not two or three, and start playing shows (house shows, parties, small and/or DIY venues, etc.) around the area as soon as we are ready to.

I'm totally fine working with people who don't have a lot of experience in bands or haven't been playing too long as long as we can make it work and you have the motivation and commitment to make it happen. The only disclaimer I have about myself is that what is more important to me than having a punk sound is having a punk ethos. Punk means something different to everyone, but for me, that essentially means do as much as we can independently, don't be jerks, and only play all ages shows. I know many people are looking to play bars or 21+ only and I completely respect that, so I think the heads up is important because I am very firm on that.
If you're interested feel free to shoot me an email or text! Things that would be helpful are your name, age, what you play, bands you like or want to sound like, anything else you think might be important!
