The Buzz: Earliest gig ever

April 3, 2002 | Ripsaw

Members of the Duluth band Super D & the Double Chucks will be fighting the morning eye-boogers on April 12. The three-piece pseudo-kinda- country/variety band will be performing a song on KDLH-TV at around 6:45 a.m.

The early-morning gig is in support of the band’s performance the following night at the NorShor Theatre during Geek Prom. The TV segment will be part of KDLH’s Newschannel 3 This Morning program, which airs from 6–7 a.m.

Super D & the Double Chucks have also just released the follow-up to their self-titled debut CD. The new album, Instrumentals, contains a wealth of good-time kegger music the for the whole demented family to enjoy.

The April 13 Geek Prom is a “somewhat formal dance for adult misfits.” Super D & the Double Chucks will be playing that show at the more suitable to rock-n-roll timeslot of 10pm. The Twin Cities’ power-rumba parody group Vinnie & the Stardüsters will follow at 11:30 p.m.

There will also be a short Geek Prom fashion show on Newschannel 3 This Morning one week earlier on April 5. The segment will showcase all the latest headgear and nerdwear sure to turn all the skinny necks at Geek Prom.
