1)Kid Dynamite was a Philadelphia-based band formed in 1997, consisting of drummer Dave Wagenschutz, guitarist Dan Yemin, and vocalist Jason Shevchuk, as well as original bassist Steve Farrell and eventual replacement Michael “Spider” Cotterman. The band put out two full-lengths before lead singer Jason Shevchuk left the band due to the wear on his voice from touring; the act subsequently disbanded in 2000. They also featured former members of highly influential New Jersey melodic hardcore outfit Lifetime, and future members of a number of acts including None More Black, Armalite, Paint It Black, and The Loved Ones.

The band’s flagship label, Jade Tree Records, also put out a compilation of rare and live material, Cheap Shots, Youth Anthems, in 2003, which also featured a teaser DVD for a forthcoming live DVD that will include footage from the band’s 2003 reunion shows for the Syrentha Savio Endowment charity.

The band played a reunion show in 2005 as a benefit for New York City’s historic CBGBs venue on August 22, 2005. The opening bands were Take My Chances (ex-The Backup Plan), Voice in the Wire, and Grey Area (whose lead singer joined Kid Dynamite for the song “Birthday” which is a cover of a song by Token Entry, the singer from Grey Area’s old band).
