Hearsay bits: The Band Formerly Known As Prince splits, more bassists wanted
Prince of tides: Looks like the Band Formerly Known As Prince is now merely the band fomerly known. Evidently, the uni-monikered members of the curiously named, dancetastic, barely-ready-for-primetime unit have opted to part ways. Aaron the frontman broke the news to fans this past Friday and said for his part, he's planning on starting a new outfit. Jesse and Nick, meanwhile, are going to focus on finishing high school (good for you, guys) and Ben is probably going to return to his previous institute of higher learning. Countless kids across this here frozen front range are undoubtedly bummed.
Ace of Bass: What is it with bass players in this town? Yesterday we told you about how Overcasters and A Shoreline Dream recently acquired new four-stringers, and not to long before that we made mention of the Legendary Beeps beginning its search for someone to hold down the low end, and that was on the heels of Vices I Admire finally ending their endless quest for a bassist. Well, now another bassist wanted sign has gone up, this one's posted by the members of 29th Street Disciples, bona fied badasses led by funnyman Ben Roy with tunes that kick you right in the junk. Interested bass men (or ladies) can reach out directly to the Disciples, who are working on songs for a new EP and full-length.
