Bad Bad Hats, the indie rock band from Minneapolis is headed to The Southgate House Revival on Tuesday, November 13th! The band released their sophomore album, Lightning Round, earlier this summer on Afternoon Records (Yellow Ostrich, Haley Bonar, John Vanderslice).
The band consists of Kerry Alexander, Chris Hoge, and Connor Davison. Named for a trouble-making character from the Madeline children’s books, Bad Bad Hatsis defined by a balance of sweet and sour. Their music honors classic pop songwriting, with nods to nineties rock simplicity and pop-punk frivolity. Through it all, Alexander’s unflinchingly sincere lyrics cut to the emotional heart of things.
Their debut album Psychic Reader came out in 2015, they've since toured extensively with The Front Bottoms, Margaret Glaspy and even a handful of dates with Third Eye Blind to name a few.
