Hey, we're Somerset Meadows! You like energetic? You like rock? We are here to deliver it to you!
We've been playing the Portland area in our latest incarnation for 4 years, and have roots here in various bands for more than a decade. Natural comparisons to Guided by Voices and REM are often brought up by others. Me, I'd say we play big pop songs. We have many.
I believe every band should have a goal. Personally, I'd like to write a great song. A really great song. Money, fame... not so interesting.
We're prompt, really enjoy playing, and don't need cash to play (although a drink ticket is always appreciated). No problems with opening slots, closing slots, or tiny stages. Really, we're not rock star prima donnas — we come to rock. [+]
