While they may hail from St. Louis, the band is well-known and well-loved in Lawrence with regular, rip-roaring appearances throughout the year. This Thursday, they’ll be appearing on the Bottleneck stage as part of a three-date run with Skating Polly (another out-of-state band well-loved in Lawrence). They spent the last year touring the coasts, and are focusing on the Midwest this Summer.
“Have Fun” is the second single from their upcoming album, Heavy High. There hasn’t been a release date set yet, but you’ll likely hear it at their upcoming show. The song centers around something a lot of brooders can relate to. “‘Have Fun’ is about being in a sad funk, just wanting to hide in your bed,” Nusbaum says. “But you have a really good friend who makes you go out into the world to have some good times. It energizes you and makes you happy again.”
