Bio

The Wee-Beasties are a punk rock band from Denton, Texas formed in 2000. The band is notable for its use of a brass section, which is largely regarded as unusual within their genre. Formed in 2000 as a three-piece by vocalist/guitarist Richard Haskins, bassist David Dutton, and drummer Brian Hutmacher, the band remained fairly unknown in their region of North Texas for several years. Their addition of a brass section and focus on a notoriously wild live show (Haskins often takes to the stage in nothing but women's underwear) has gained them a substantial cult following as their career has progressed, however numerous break-ups and line-up changes have plagued the band almost their entire existence. Many of their releases remain out of print after the first or second pressing are sold, yet attendance levels at live performances continue to surpass that of many other current and more broadly known groups.
Tours and releases came to a near standstill by 2005, yet a reforming in 2010 and an appearance in the Vans Warped Tour have kept fans interested. The group has been banned from many clubs and venues throughout the country for both the behavior of the band on stage, as well as that of audience members. Shows often result in being stopped less than halfway through a set by either club owners or police. As a result, several band members have extended criminal records. They have performed at the 35 Conferette in 2011 and on the Warped Tour 2011. The band has played upwards of fifty performances which they have claimed to be their "last show ever".
