Trampled by Turtles

Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who’d ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn’t rely on amplification. Simonett hadn’t played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who’d previously played drums in a speed metal act) and bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.

Varsity / Jelani Sei / Boosegumps Tickets in Philadelphia, PA, United States

The band began playing shows around Chicago and, in April 2014, self-released their first EP, “Thanks for Nothing,” after recording it one weekend in the basement of Smith’s parents’ home. Since then, Varsity has found success with its indie-pop sound featuring the powerful driving vocals of singer/keyboardist Stephanie Smith with infectious guitar melodies and exciting rhythm. Besides sharing bills with performers like American Wrestlers, Alvvays, Courtney Barnett, The Hold Steady and Car Seat Headrest, Varsity has produced a number of digital releases— two complementary songs at a time in what they call digital 7”s—that have earned rave reviews and a growing audience with millions of plays on YouTube and Spotify. With their 2018 release Parallel Person on Babe City Records, Varsity brings their music to new depths that expr
