hi. i’m a girl. do you wanna know what it means to be marginalized (in the [emo] music scene)? i recently went to a show. a guy from a touring band stood next to me while my friends’ band was setting up to play.
On this episode, I chat with Knapsack drummer Colby Mancasola about the origins of the band, working with Mark Trombino, never having a website and hearing the “next big thing” thrown around in a post-Nirvana world. Plus, find out what the famous record executive Jimmy Iovine said to Knapsack after a showcase in Los Angeles. It’s exactly what you think he would say.

A true connector in the scene before social media and a 4 inch screen took over our lives.

hey y’all, it’s a difficult and weird thing trying to figure the right way to announce this, but it’s probably easiest to just be straight to the point - we’ve decided to play three more shows as a band at the end of this month, and then call it quits. we’re not really prepared to give a real reason for this decision, except that we all just kind of feel like it’s time.
you can stream our new EP in its entirety now, and pick up a physical copy from one of the three release shows next weekend, or from double double whammy’s webstore.
catch us at our final shows:
november 22nd @ SUNY purchase w/ weird korea, high pop, please november 23rd @ shea stadium, BK w/ radical dads, shark?, porches november 24th @ golden tea house, philadelphia w/ idiot kid, glocca morra, porches
thanks for all the good times and all the bad times, it’s been cool
