Headlights | The Shaky Hands | Pomegranates
October 21, 2009
Following the demise of the acclaimed pop band Absinthe Blind (Parasol Records), Erin Fein and Brett Sanderson formed the short-lived guitarless band Orphans, which provided Fein a developmental first outlet as principle songwriter. Soon, Tristan Wraight returned to Champaign, Illinois from a stint on the road as touring guitarist for Maserati and joined the band, invoking a startling change as he and Fein began a prolific period of songwriting together. The band changed completely, and in the thaw of the Illinois spring of 2004, Headlights was born in a farmhouse just north of Champaign. They will be joined by Portland, Oregon's The Shaky Hands (http://www.myspace.com/shakyhands)as well as Cincinnati's Pomegranates (http://www.myspace.com/pomegranatesart).
