OFF WITH THEIR HEADS + DEAD TO ME + RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS w/ The Gusto
Off with Their Heads is a punk rock band formed in 2002 from Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Dead To Me is one of those punk bands that people refer to as "real punk" whatever that means. As far as I can tell, it means sleeveless shirts, an attention to aggressive song craft and a strong desire to wig out the squares.
In 1997, former Blanks member Pat Lillard ("Spider Stewart") (Bass), formed The Riverboat Gamblers with Fadi el-Assad ("Freddy Castro") (Lead Guitar), and Mike Weibe ("Rookie Sensation") (vocals). Lillard's original intention was to emulate Virginia rockers The Candy Snatchers in direct contrast to the popular emo music at the time, The Riverboat Gamblers' premiere show featured over-the-top songs relating to drinking and of course, gambling, tongue planted firmly in cheek. The Riverboat Gamblers continued to play house parties and shows throughout Denton and the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The Gamblers burst out of the Denton college scene in September 2001 on the back of their self-released 7" single "Jenna Is A No Show." Both 2001's self-titled release and 2003's Something to Crow About were produced by Texas punk rocker Tim Kerr (Big Boys, Lord High Fixers).
