Bad Bad Hats is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Kerry Alexander (vocals, guitar, wisdom), Chris Hoge (drums, courage), and Noah Boswell (bass, power) met while attending Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minn. Kerry and Chris began writing songs together in 2010, recording a collection of demos that would later become their first EP. The addition of their friend Noah in 2012 solidified the line-up. The indie rock trio's songwriting quickly caught the ear of Minneapolis label Afternoon Records, whose alumni includes Yellow Ostrich, Now Now, Haley Bonar, and One for the Team, among others. Afternoon Records signed the trio and released their It Hurts EP in early 2013. Two years later, the band released their bold debut LP, Psychic Reader, on July 17th.
Anna Gebhardt began writing songs for her music project Annalibera in 2010. In 2012 she started playing shows in Iowa with guitarist Ryan Stier (The River Monks), bassist Phil Young (TIRES) and a rotating cast of Iowa players, including Nicholas Naioti (MR NASTI) and Anne Carlisle (Trouble Lights). Annalibera’s debut LP ‘Nevermind I Love You’ was released in 2015. The same week NILY was released, Anna released an experimental album entitled ‘loveil’. While touring both albums in 2015 and 2016, she began writing and arranging the next release, due soon.
