Well Wasted

Plastic Picnic is a Brooklyn-based band comprised of four Pacific Northwest transplants. It wasn’t until moving East that the group was brought together by a mutual friend. Instantly compatible, the group share a taste for lyrically forthright indie rock paired with driving 80’s rhythms, sweetly-spun melodies and atmospheric synth and guitar work.

The band will self-release their follow up to 2017's self-titled debut with another EP this coming summer. This will also be the band's second time at SXSW.
