New Band Pages: Teen Freak


It looks like the Black Sheep Band Lotto that happened a couple of weekends ago resulted in a new Springfield band. That band is going by the name “Teen Freak” and today we are bringing you a brand new band page for the new band. You can find that right here. Teen Freak features members of Looming, Soap Scum, and The Locals among a few other bands. You can catch Teen Freak live next at Black Sheep on Thursday, September 18th along with F///\\\M, Secret Tombs, and JAG.

Teen Freak isn’t the only band we have a band page for. You can find the long list of 70-something band pages we have built here on our current bands page. Do you play in a Springfield band that hasn’t yet set up a page with us? We would love to hear from you! Get ahold of us at and we will work with you to set something up.
