Til August

OK, here's the premise: a bunch of musicians who have played together in the past decide in late April to get together and form a rock band. The catch: The band will be breaking up in August. In the intervening four months, will they be able to practice, establish themselves as a band, get some gigs, and attract a crowd?

It might sound like a lame-ass idea for a reality TV show, but in fact it's actually happening, right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Members of several former and current bands are assembling for a quick summer project before one of their members heads off to grad school. In honor of their limited life expectancy, the band has decided to call itself "Til August". (And let's hope Aimee Mann and her bandmates don't find out about this!)

One other thing: the birth, life, and death of this band will be chronicled in a blog, - by me, and hopefully by the members of the band as well!

Yes, indeedy. We'll be listing the roster eventually on their blogsite.

Does this remind you a little of the 15-minute heroes from Stormwatch?
