Birds are chirping. Leaves are budding. Plants are blooming. There is such an explosion of life happening all around us. In the cellar temp of the Bunker, we’re cleaning house a bit and rehanging some of the sound foam that did not want to cling to the walls by our first method of adhesion.
We’ve come across some adversity. We had some big hopes and didn’t make the cut. The struggle is real. We’ll take a look in the mirror, batten down the hatches and right the ship. No one said it was easy.
And here’s the best news we’ve gotten in a while, you could say, we’ve called in a ringer. Drew Brown returns. That’s right. Drew is back in the Twin Cities and he’s back in the band. We couldn’t be happier to have him back in the fold. Expect to see him at shows from here on out playing saxophone, banjo and guitar.

We’d like to thank everyone who came out to Acadia Café. It was definitely short notice, but it was fun to jump on the bill. It was one of the best Wednesday nights I’ve had in a while. Dave broke a sting on the first song, but other than that the set went well and the crowd was warm and welcoming as we closed out the evening.
We have a date and a venue for the 10 Year Bunker Reunion Show. It will be held at the Driftwood Char Bar on Saturday July 28th. The night will start with the band that christened the Bunker so many years ago, Galaxy Drive. Jaguar Queen, formerly in some iteration, the Batmanz, will follow and Babies Making Babies will make a dramatic appearance. The night will close with the current Bunker house band, King Fish Crow. It is to be a fantastic reunion and celebration of bands that have sweat in the stifling august heat of our cherished practice space. Spend the night with us as we go all that way back to the year 2008.
In other really cool Bunker news, Liz was chosen to be the artist for the Stone Arch Bridge Festival. We’re ecstatic for her. She’s an amazing artist and if you didn’t know already, the secrets out. Love ya, Liz, cheers and Happy Birthday!!!
