To the Rescue
No, it has nothing to do with fast food. By day, the members of this DC - liberation band clash with fairly pedestrian villains: oppressive bosses, infidelities, and the lurking menace of suburbia. But when the Capitol Building comes under attack from a giant squid, only the quartet of geek-rock superheroes can fly 'To The Rescue.' The Franchise is a Washington-DC-based rock band, who draw from our times in various other locales to create a true DC sound. The music has been described as 'geek rock,' but you don't have to be a geek to like it: from quirky covers to songs about pets, comic books, or middle eastern food, The Franchise has your number. If you enjoy what used to be called "college rock," alternative rock, and New Wave-things along the lines of Talking Heads, REM, They Might Be Giants, U2, the Cure, XTC, Cake, Jonathan Coulton, Nerf Herder, early Police, etc., then you might conceivably enjoy the Franchise as well. Do check it out. The band members are: Patrick Nolan Jackson Maier Noah Kaye David Barak.
