put the Eek! in Geek (because they certainly didn't put the O.C. in) Rock, and for seven years these unrepentant refugees from marching band and the Rochester School of Music have been forging their way, the only way they know how, which, unfortunately, is a little bit more than the law will allow. To celebrate this anniversary, they're offering free food (while it lasts) and door prizes, and are premiering their recently shot video for "My Defense," off their forthcoming album for Unschooled Records (due in February). The tuba, accordion and trombone wielding quartet's weaving rock sound also receives a makeover thanks to an early Christmas of new toys (i.e. pedals and gear) courtesy of their label. Precocious popsters The Never open.
SNMNMNM and The Never play Local 506 on Saturday, Dec. 18 at 10 p.m.
