Tight Pants Syndrome Releases Singles, Saturday at the Schlafly Tap Room

Posted By on Fri, Jun 20, 2008 at 9:30 AM


This Saturday at the Schlafly Tap Room, come get your pop on when Tight Pants Syndrome finally releases its first CD. Titled Singles, the disc captures the power-pop group from its inception through the present day. I spoke with bassist/vocalist Brian McClelland (who's also in the Maxtone 4) in this week's paper; he had this to say about the group's first out-of-town trek, when it played the well-respected International Pop Overthrow festival in Chicago.

"We did some Champaign and Chicago stuff over the last month or two. It was a blast; I never had that much fun being out of town with a band before. They're just the goofiest people I've ever known in my life — and that's in the best way, they're really fun. I'm on the midnight shift, [and] we left early in the morning, I tried to sleep the entire way up to Chicago — we had a day show [there] and a night show that same night in Champaign — and these guys were so goofy, yelling and screaming the whole time. I was exhausted, but they were having so much fun, I couldn't tell 'em, "Guys, can you keep it down?" Because that enthusiasm was so, I don't know...It makes everything so much more exciting and fun."

Take a listen to some music, posted courtesy of the band. The show starts at 9 p.m. -- and it's free.
