we're a band that's been playing for around 4 years in central iowa and just relocated to minneapolis. Can't say I blame you. It's Iowa, after all. our 2nd album just dropped on Oct 1st and we have a couple EP's under our belt as well. we've been playing alt/rock a la death cab or mute math, but we're looking to go a different direction. we're looking for a guitarist, another lead vocalist, a keyboardist and possibly bassist. So, wait. Did you kick out, like, the whole band or did the whole band quit when you decided to leave for Minneapolis on your own or did you quit the band and take the name or were you seriously just a singing drummer? Because you realize that you're looking for a fucking quartet with this ad, right? ideally you have played in other bands, are interested in doing music full time, are interested in collaborating in an original way and have decent equipment. the ability to sing is a huge plus.

we're all Both. When there's only two of you, it's "both". in our mid-twenties, and if you're comfortable with that, so are we. It's not your age, it's that you're looking for a whole band.

Looking to restart Shock Rock horror core band. need musicians!!! (minneapolis.)

Reply to: comm-xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx@craigslist.org

I am a 19 year old musician looking for new members to work on my Shock rock Horror Core band. Cool, so kind of an Alice Cooper thing going on, then? I'd pay to see something like that. Im looking to create an amazing stage show with great music dealing with gothic subjects. Do I really have to do this? *sigh*
From Merriam-Webster's online dictionary...
1Goth·ic adj \ˈgä-thik\

Definition of GOTHIC

a : of, relating to, or resembling the Goths, their civilization, or their language
b : teutonic, germanic
c : medieval 1
d : uncouth, barbarous

a : of, relating to, or having the characteristics of a style of architecture developed in northern France and spreading through western Europe from the middle of the 12th century to the early 16th century that is characterized by the converging of weights and strains at isolated points upon slender vertical piers and counterbalancing buttresses and by pointed arches and vaulting
b : of or relating to an architectural style reflecting the influence of the medieval Gothic

often not capitalized : of or relating to a style of fiction characterized by the use of desolate or remote settings and macabre, mysterious, or violent incidents
— goth·i·cal·ly adverb
— Goth·ic·ness noun

First Known Use of GOTHIC

I really can't tell if I want to make a Talking Heads joke (More Songs about Buildings and Food, anyone?) or quote Martin Mull with "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture. Or something. There's got to be a joke in there, somewhere.
Kind of a, Marilyn Manson, Meh. KoRn, No. Tool, Meh. System of a Down, Meh. Rob Zombie Meh. influence. You do realize that out of those five bands, only two have anything to do with shock rock, right? That's forty percent right there, guy. Maybe you should look into Alice Cooper. I have lyrics written and need help writing the music for them, so I'm looking for a drummer, a guitarist, a bassist (a keyboardist if i can find one) Again. Somebody needs a whole band. but the main things I'm looking for in bandmates, is i need to be able to get along well enough with them, and i need them to be open to express what I'm trying to express musically. I'm looking for a huge stageshow. so makeup and effects, something shocking. I need Shit tons of money for makeup and effects for the aforementioned huge stage show? Twiggy and John 5 type musicians. Uhh... My vocals are pretty unusual. SSSooo... you can't sing. i try to mix it up, not exactly a metal voice but i have my screaming moments and my growling moments, then my singing moments and my "horror voice" For some reason, that makes me think you mean your O face. So if your interested in playing in a grotesque horror sideshow type band Do I really have to do this again?
2grotesque adj

Definition of GROTESQUE

Reply to: comm-xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx@craigslist.org

Hi. I am a female vocalist (19) with pop/punk influences, that is looking for a bassist / drummer, preferably between the ages 17 No. We've been over this. You are not in high school anymore. You need to leave the high school kids alone so they can be high school kids. -25, with any rock / pop / punk influences to jam with as a pop/punk band. Semi-serious. I will take whatever I can get, Oh, Jesus. It's been three days since you posted this ad. Your inbox must be lousy with spammers. so if you are a beginner, I do not mind. You're going to mind when you have someone in front of you who can't play worth dick.
Hope to hear from you soon! Thank you.

Drummer needed for an out of town original rock band (All over WI)

Date: 2011-10-10, 9:48AM CDT
Reply to: comm-xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx@craigslist.org

We are a female fronted original heavy rock band. We play a lot out of town in Wisconsin. OK, so why are you posting in Minneapolis? We have a lot of fun with what we do. We are for sure more concerned with playing fun live shows and getting our music out to people than making money. That's great but why are you posting in Minneapolis? We have a great time playing shows Uh-huh. and even have a good time when we practice. Well, hey, thanks for letting us know how the other half lives over in Wisconsin.

Our band is a unique situation as one member is from the Twin Cities Oh. and the rest are from deep in Wisconsin. Huh. We practice in Appleton, WI Woah woah woah woah woah... Nigga, that is five hours away. and sometimes or up near Bruce, WI at our cabins. (Three hours closer than Appleton, for the curious.) We may start occasionally practicing here too. Where is 'here'? Is 'here' Minneapolis? But this is a position that will require a good amount of travel. No shit, Sherlock. This works out great No, it doesn't. No the fuck it doesn't. You practice five hours away. Tack one more hour on to the drive time and you have a quarter of a day. The Earth rotates ninety fucking degrees in the time it takes to get to practice. The sun is on the completely opposite side of the sky you saw it on when you got in the car by the time you get to practice. Caravans of ancient peoples made treks like this and that was for food, motherfucker. Quit being silly and start looking locally. because we all make sure to do our homework so that when we get together we have our stuff down tight. We are looking to begin playing about two shows a month and one practice a month. All on weekends. Well when the hell else could you pull this shit off? Then see where things go.

If you are a fast self starter drama free drummer that Lives closer to Appleton than five hours away say like actually in Appleton... loves to rock out, hit us up.
