Fresh from a 30-city fall tour, (and a summer opening slot for The Rolling Stones) members of the hometown favorites, The Districts keep the momentum going with a new noise-rock side project called Straw Hats. Straw Hats features Rob Grote (drums and vocals) and Braden Lawrence (guitar) from The Districts joined by their friend Breshon Martzell (bass). Straw Hat strays into more punk and noise-rock territory than the usual material performed by The Districts. Check out “On The Box” and stay up-to-date on this project on the band’s Facebook page.
