A cosmic triple party of unicorn champions ride into battle brandishing filtbiant synth leads and facial hair. Led by Sean Rainey(keys, vocals, synth, chair tossing, space travel) and accompanied by Cambodian born Mike Gillotti(drums) and lumber-human-super-jack Eric Dabrowski(bass), they will melt your face, take your hand and throw you down a staircase of ear candy, only to realize that the stairs were real and you spilled your beverage. With the energy two, maybe three, oxen, the Apples Pirates will deliver in less than thirty minutes. Problems solved. Pescone.
