If there is a recipe for making great music, DISBAND does not know it. They throw the eggshells in with the yolk and albumen, they pour turpentine into that bowl, they mix it with sadness and sweetness, bake it in the oven at a thousand degrees, sear it, broil it, chill it, re-heat it, and serve it up to audiences with toothpicks stuck through saran wrap for ease and convenience. When they are done the kitchen is a mess, and they like it that way.
 
10pm – Guess and Check

Guess & Check formed in 2011 with the husband and wife songwriting team of Maya and Jay and their friend Shayna (co-op member) on bass.  They have produced countless notes and words since then, with Barry Ickow joining on drums in 2012.  They put out an EP in late 2011, with their first full-length due later this year.
