Thank you to everyone, near and far, who reached out over the weekend! My first birthday away from home was spent around awesome talented friends. I even had the chance to take pictures of a show for the first time in far too long.
I would not have had it any other way "25 & Still Alive" as @b_sides_y says!
On April 6, Punch Drunk Tagalongs (@punchdrunktagalongs) an indie rock bank with strong ’90’s grunge influences, is releasing its first full length album, “Hazy.” Not only is the album dropping, but the band is headlining a show at Cleveland’s Grog Shop (@thegrogshop) on April 7 to celebrate the occasion. The band will also play an Akron show at the Empire on May 12 as part of a female-fronted band night.
When asked how the band’s name originated, frontwoman and songwriter Alisha Stahnke responded, “Who hasn’t eaten a whole box of tagalong cookies in one sitting by themselves?” Understanding the name is pretty important, it turns out, because the band’s music is very much like the cookie: sweet on the surface with layers beneath that reveal a depth and a satisfying bite that one might not expect.
Added Stahnke, “As a band I hope it (the album) conveys the seriousness and commitment that we are all putting forward. We are a band that works hard and will continue to work hard. We spent nearly a year making this album and we hope that shows. Songs were revamped, reworked, rewritten and rehearsed to the nth degree, and I really think that hard work and dedication is apparent when you listen to the album. We are super proud of this album and its Northeast Ohio roots. We can’t wait to share it with the world.” #akron#localmusic#punchdrunktagalongs (Photo: Jarrod Berger)

Last night, we had the pleasure, along with Minderlithe and Cowboy Bohemian, of opening for Punch Drunk Tagalongs at The Fire. They’re recently signed, on tour from Cleveland, super talented, and we really enjoyed playing this show and meeting them. Check them out, and watch for their new album “Hazy”, out April 6! Highly recommend this pairing of ear-grabbing music and challenging lyrics. PC: @allyphotowagon@punchdrunktagalongs#punchdrunktagalongs#phillymusic#firephilly#touringband
One of Cleveland's finest, #PunchDrunkTagalongs, have a new record coming out early next month! Keep an ear out for that. Meanwhile, your eyes might deceive you: their bassist appears to be Marty from #GilmoreGirls but he is not!
