Ross and the Hellpets
Hailing from the diverse locales of Baton Rouge, San Diego and
Syracuse, it only makes sense that they would form a band in the
Pacific NW. Individually, the members of Ross and the Hellpets have
been playing rock, punk and other types of indie music around the U.S.
for over 12 years. They've existed in their current form since shortly
after the 2000 election, at which time their songs began to focus on
themes of social justice and equality. The band includes former members
of Neutral Milk Hotel, The Gerbils, Orange Pop Chicken and the
Lean-tos, and have been fortunate to share stages with such performers
as Elliott Smith, Jon Spencer, Dub Narcotic Soundsystem, The Softies,
Versus, The Decemberists, and Mojo Nixon, as well as hundreds of
amazing lesser-known bands.
