When their song “F*#$% Everybody” was featured as bumper music for the Minneapolis sports radio station KFAN’s morning show The Power Trip, it seemed right at home. With big, fast guitars, strong, rock-n-jock bass/drums, stadium anthem vocals and professional sounding production, the Dead End Friends represented their home team (Duluth) quite well. They’ve performed locally since 2011, have one album under their belt, and have started gigging regularly in the Twin Cities. Ben Anderson, Phil McLoughlin and Joe Warttman share vocals and guitar/bass fuzz while drummer Pete Hannegraf keeps the speedy tempos tightly packed for long, animated sets.
