Clear Plastic Masks

#sxsw #nextstage


Formed in NYC in 2011, Clear Plastic Masks quite literally have honed a world influence into sharp, tight, nostalgic rock n’ roll that is at once bone-deep familiar and not like anything else you’ve hear.

The story starts where every good story does, at a dive bar where lead vocalist and guitarist Andrew Katz met drummer Charles Garmendia. They then met guitarist/keyboard player Matt Menold and bassist Eduardo DuQuense.

After several shows and recording sessions, the band decided to relocate in late 2012, becoming one of the first now many groups around the country to spy Nashville as America’s next hot bed of authentic rock n’ roll. The band continues to tour and earn new fans in each club in every city they stop in.
