From love’s first blush to an outright lie, from getting set up by their parents to crossing paths across decades, musicians have funny ways of forming bands. Our music bloggers Michelle Bacon and Dan Calderon go back to the beginning for four local bands to unravel how they each came to be, as Flatland’s popular series Origin Story gets a musical twist.
Our first story is on Ha Ha Tonka, a band that got its start with a misleading piano player. Check it out at this link.
Through playing a 140-date solo tour, Nate Allen found himself… and his future musical and life partner. Check out this week’s Origin Story, on Destroy Nate Allen.
Each Origin Story will be published on our sister site, Flatland, on Thursdays in December, so be sure to come back weekly for the rest!
