After a couple posts from me about DJ’s, it’s time to shift gears a bit and introduce you all to Inchworm. A local band that I had been hearing about for the last year or so. I even know a few members, but until 3 weeks ago I had never heard them before. So there I was, standing outside the bar and all I could hear was this great voice resonating onto the sidewalk. “Who is that?” It was Matt Baugher, who I’d met the year before and was then part of another band along with drummer, Mike Holtz. Both played Lollapalooza last year, but I had always heard that Inchworm was their gem and work-in-progress.
A gem indeed and really worth a good listen. Don’t believe me? Well, Richard Milne on WXRT featured them recently on Local Anesthetic so take his lead. You’ll hear fantastic music that’s an enduring culmination of blues, rock, folk, and pop – a blend in good measure that will keep you listening. And I have to tell you, I’d never heard Matt sing before and what a nice surprise that was. Moreover, Inchworm is sharing with you by offering NBC Street Team readers an exclusive free download of their EP which was previously only available to “the industry”. Grab this sampling of their music while you can because it will only be available until their official CD release this Friday.
Speaking of the CD release, Inchworm sounds even better live so be sure to hit their CD release party this Friday at Darkroom. If you just can’t get enough, click here to buy their new CD ‘Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing’ on iTunes now!
Come on out, hear Inchworm, meet Inchworm, buy Inchworm a beer to thank them for the free download, and then pick up a CD – all at Darkroom this Friday night!
