The Good Excuses now have 2 wins in a row, and today at 6pm ET these returning champions are going for 3. This Philadelphia band has a very strong fanbase. Probably because they have a solid, high energy album, 30 Minutes or Less, and it’s available on their Bandcamp page. Make sure you go see them at Dave & Buster’s Dockside Bar on August 23rd, we’ve been told they are a fun band to watch live.


SIKA is a band that formed in Minnesota back in the early 2000’s. The band has quite an interesting story behind their name SIKA; a Russian nickname to honor one of the members of the band, Sergei, after a terrible mugging left him comatose. The band has several releases over the last decade, and they’ve played just about every venue in the Twin Cities. Their newest album is called Destiny (available on CDBaby), and today on Gashouse Live we’ll be sampling a few songs.


We’ve got 3 tracks to play from both bands. When you hear a song on our show, use the thumbs up/down buttons to share your honest opinion. Those votes will determine which of the 2 bands will come back tomorrow as champion to face a new challenger. We’ve also got a new track from Danny Stoddard, and Amber Ladd will be performing an entire acoustic set as part of our Wednesday Night Acoustic Series!
