We were busier than bands half our age and we are great.

The Midgetmen have been playing white collar slop-fun-rock in exchange for free beer since 2002. The Midgetmen's 4 albums continue to provide comfort for fans of late 80s/early 90s indie guitar rock.

The Midgetmen celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2012 by achieving their life goals: Being an official SXSW showcasing artist, being feted by the Mayor of Austin with the proclamation of "The Midgetmen Day", playing the Northeast again, performing the entirety of Weird Al's Dare To Be Stupid album at Fun Fun Fun Fest, performing at the Inaugural Formula 1 Austin Fan Fest, and recording the aforementioned Dare To Be Stupid.

The Midgetmen were asked to judge the Austin Technology Council & Austin Music Peoples' 2013 Corporate Band of the Bands.

The Midgetmen are hard at work on album #5.
