Formed on New Year's Day 2019, Rat Champion is very much a band born out of hangovers. Playing a mixture of punk and shoegaze, the project serves as the vehicle for three friends to get together and shake off any blues and their physical ailments by playing loud, short sets with the humor and humility that comes from getting older. Rat Champion is bassist and vocalist Jennelle Finkbeiner, drummer Jake Little, and guitarist Jimmy Finkbeiner.
