MANDIAS demands attention. This alternative rock/ post punk group is an expression and exploration on what it means to have an ego. Why do we view ourselves as “better”? How do we interact with ourselves? What does it really mean to be narcissistic? “Look at my works ye mighty and despair”
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.
