“We’d play every night of the week in a phone booth if someone would have us,” says Aaron Hagebak, drummer of The Umbrella Sequence. He means it: in just over a year since forming, the local quintet has played a slew of gigs that would make established bands jealous, and a whole bunch of others that would make a high school punk band blush. Early successes at places like Big V’s and the Uptown Diner have led to the band playing bizzaro joints like Taco Toro’s (an all ages club-slash-taco stand out in Inver Grove Heightss) and the Hudson, Wis. YWCA. No job’s too big, no job’s too small, apparently. And in between they’re unrelenting quest for an audience, The Umbrella Sequence has found the time to record one of the most remarkable debut albums by a local band in a good long while.
Check out the Umbrella Sequence, coming soon to a phone booth near you. These kids are hungry for an audience, so who knows what could happen.
