The Thneeds @ 9pm

The Thneeds, like all great bands, were formed because somebody lost a bet. We're pretty sure it was 1997. Sometime after OJ went to court, but before Harry went to Hogwarts. Our collective memories are somewhat hazy about the topic--not because of anything untoward, mind you, but simply because it was a long time ago. We do remember committing to a couple of four-hour gigs very early on--before we actually had a band, and certainly before we had any songs. That kind of set the tone. John Kohler, Jim Vogt, Brent Howell, and Bill Schnabel were all there in the early days, and remain with us today. The four of us, along with Kat Gustafson--the greatest rock cellist in Interior Alaska history--spent the next few years writing songs, playing out, and generally seeking our fortunes on the Fairbanks live music scene. The period culminated in 1999 with the release of 900 Planets, our first and to date, only actual studio-produced Thneeds CD. The year 2000 brought with it the Thneed Diaspora, a period in which several band members took the unconventional step of "getting real jobs." In 2004, perhaps 2005, after said band members had an opportunity to discover what the concept of "real jobs" actually entailed, the Thneeds found themselves back in action. We picked up Steve Moore as a ringer guitarist somewhere in there and now don't know what we'd do without him. Since then, we've played together a few times a year--whenever the mood strikes. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Usually in Fairbanks. Brent is in Anchorage, so he plays with us when he can. Kat is still officially in the band, but I don't think she is aware of that. Somebody please tell her. We've written a lot of songs over the years, many of them available on our various live releases or side-project albums, but there are more to come. Many more. The future awaits...

Make sure to come check out this great band on Saturday starting at 9pm!
