Version 1

Ratboy is an indie/rock/jam band from New Paltz, NY. They’re presence in the New York and the Northeast has continued to build over the past few years as they tour the area.

From their myspace page:
“Straddling the line between song-focused indie rock and the expanded perimeter of the jam scene, Ratboy draws comparisons to Lou Reed, Soul Coughing, Neil Young and Modest Mouse. Ratboy then blends in a dash of surrealism and even silliness, ala Beck or Ween, as the finishing touch on an original modern rock sound.

Sutton, the main songwriter, has performed alongside the Ramones, Phish, and Pete Seeger. Senzatimore, the drummer and informal musical director, is an academy-trained multi-instrumentalist who honors the band’s ethic of unfussy simplicity but is never afraid to express his love of Frank Zappa or John Zorn in subtle and subversive ways. This year also marks lead guitarist John Burdick’s first contributions to the band’s recording and songwriting process, after two years in the live lineup.”
