Biography

So Damn Thirsty is a 4 piece punk rock band that was formed during 2005, in the Washington DC area, for the sole purpose of putting the rock and fun back in punk rock. Early beginnings of the band consisted of Timmy and Steve as an acoustic act. The guys met in 2003 and began writing songs and playing in their spare time. Later, a high school friend of Steve's; Jason was added on bass. They began playing at various places in Frederick in late 2004 and received an overwhelmingly positive response from friends and fans. So began the search for a drummer, and Animal was added in March 2005. He brought a grunge sound to the band with his elaborate drum fills. By June 2005, we were playing various locals venues and charging ahead at full speed. Animal left in late 2005 to pursue other interests, and we acquired Stix. Since then our sound has become decidedly punk. We are highly professional and motivated, and are always dedicated to putting on an energetic, entertaining show no matter how small or big the crowd. Our band takes pride in doing whatever it takes to make sure our fans feel appreciated and have a great time at shows, because we know our fans are what really matters.

We have had the honor of sharing the stage with many great bands, first and foremost: The Misfits! In addition, we have also opened for: The Briggs, Varuca Salt, Time Again, Bigwig, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Lorene Drive, The Audition, Madina Lake, Love Equals Death, Bella Morte, Suicide City, and many more.

We are proud of what industry experts have to say about us:

I want to give a shout out to these guys. They are one of the few bands around that knows what real punk is about. They played the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus show and got a huge response from everyone. More than once through out the night they were approached and told they were the best band there. YEAH!! These guys played there asses off and deserve the utmost respect. They've got mine. SO DAMN THIRSTY is welcome at my club anytime.

So many bands aim for a product with this kind of output, but So Damn Thirsty actually pulls through. To see the band live reveals alot about the group, its energy. It’s hard to keep your eyes focused on one member as the entire group fills the stage with power and intensity. So Damn Thirsty is a band not to miss."

"So Damn Thirsty is one of the only bands in the underground/local band scene that really gets the crowd involved with the show. Their stage performance has so much energy; it is no wonder they are called So Damn Thirsty. After you see this band live, you'll need a cool refreshing beverage."
