Video of The Day – The Typical Johnsons – Wreckage

From The Typical Johnsons – This song is about commemorating a moment, this is our stand alone single, Wreckage. This is for all of us who have crashed through our collective pasts, hopefully with enough force to have created a memory and a story that stands the test of time…

Here is the song!

We’re still here… not knowing anything and doing it all wrong.

Thank you to The Ohio Recording Co. and to WiseUP Entertainment for the recording and the video…your-tuesday-alternative-new logo

YTAA Goes Age Nowhere

52005916_2078455642245954_4536899964810297344_nAllow us to set a scene for our upcoming show on Tuesday. Imagine stepping in for a drink at a bar where Sticky Fingers era Keith Richards is hanging out with his Nudie Cohen Suit wearing pal Graham Parsons and a world weary Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes. They are all sitting in a booth commenting on the passing musical fancies of the day.

That scene is the experience of Age Nowhere! Imagine a true double guitar attack from Identical-twin brothers Matt and Dan Spaugy paired with smoky evocative lyrics sung by Paul Monin propelled by driving drums from Seth Gilliam and pounding bass of Matt Terry. That is the experience of Age Nowhere.The band takes it’s nom de plume from one of the standout tracks on Dayton’s own Shrug‘s 2005 record ‘Whole Hog For The Macho Jesus.’

Join us for conversation, music and the Age Nowhere experience online at the usual website wudr.udayton.edu on Tuesday, March 19th from 3-6pm!
