Solid Freex, Midwest Waves, & Cafe Noise Unit

Midwest Waves (Iowa City)

Solid Freex (Madison WI)

Solid Freex has been a band for 2 1/2 years, and in that time has opened for Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Deerhoof (was invited as a featured band by them to the Sled Island festival they curated), Dead Rider, OHMME, and many others....
"As much as we'd love to rap about how adorable it is that Madison-based multi-instrumentalist Steve Coombs—mastermind of legendary one-man no-wave project Trin Tran (Drag City/GOD? & Castle Face records) —decided to start a band called Solid Freex with his two teenage sons, it's way more important to discuss how this band fucking rips. The band pulls the explosive anxiety from '80s hardcore, the spastic slant from post-punk, and the nasty hooks from the grittier end of Detroit garage-rock." - Joel Shanahan, TONE
