If there were local music awards for best new band logo, this year’s winner would be ska group the Potluck Communists. A cartoonish giant soup pot next to a black four-leaf clover next to an imposing Soviet hammer and sickle; pretty heady stuff for young men who haven’t turned 21 yet. Nick Carlson-Becklund handles the vocals and shares guitar work with Jake Vainio. Ian Erickson and Robert McGrady make up the bass/drum rhythm section while Hans Arvidson-Hicks adds trumpet. They’ve played Pete Fest, KBJR-TV, the Ska Skank Redemption show and plan to record sometime in 2015.
