Places and People we like #1-Funhouse-Seattle, WA

We played at Seattle's Funhouse earlier this year. Brian and the rest of his staff treated us to some BBQ and plenty of Olympia beer. The club is right across the street from the Space Needle so we got to play tourist without straying off too far. Despite being on a Monday nite there was a decent crowd and everyone seemed pretty receptive. Someone over at finest kiss wrote something about the show. The sound man put us up at his house/studio and we slept good. One of the better clubs We've been too. Right on Funhouse!

Bio is an industry term for Biography

Clubs have been asking us for a bio. So here it is, the Box Elders story

Box Elders started in 2005. Clayton and I named the band after the bugs that infested the house we grew up in. We had a snare drum with hundreds of dead box elder bugs in it. When you hit it you could hear them rattling around. Originally our Mom was in the band, but she quit. We played around with some other drummers but really wanted Dave. He saw us play a free show in a park and we talked him into it. Instead of adding a fourth member Clayton and I told Dave to figure out how to play drums and keyboards at the same time. It took some practice. We recorded some songs and put out 45 which people seemed to like. ---

Also, here are some pics from us at Gonerfest 5. Canderson took the one of Clayton and Mr. Bullyrook took the other two.
