The formidable trio of Rick Froberg, Sohrab Habibion, and Greg Simpson comprise the scorching garage punk band Obits. Formed in 2006, the band comes by way of BK and has past independent projects Drive Like Jehu, Edsel, and Hot Snakes under it’s belt. Seminal to say the least. Playing Johnny Brenda’s in Philly on March 15, 2012, the band laid down numerous tracks off their 2011 release Moody, Standard and Poor along with tracks from 2009’s I Blame You.
A performance we are relieved not to have missed, Obits blasted in-your-face instrumentals with disgustingly good vocals. We felt every sound and were compelled to dive in head first. Check out some video below to see what you may have missed:
