Episode Info: Verst is a four-piece band from San Francisco, California. Bass player John Parsons first discovered guitarist John Dickey’s music in the mid-90s through a random purchase of the Pie is Gone EP in a Greenwich Village record store. Dickey was the mastermind behind Pie, a Boston-based band that opened for Built to Spill and Yo La Tengo before imploding after a string of indie releases. Parsons led San Francisco rockers, Rule of Thumb, through four albums (and opening slots for The Gourds and Richmond Fontaine, among others) before dissolving the band. In 2002, Parsons was determined to find more Pie music. An internet search revealed that Dickey had relocated to San Francisco and formed a new band, Richard Bitch. That move would prove to be fortuitous, though it would take another decade before the two Johns joined forces in Verst. With Starship Crash, Verst is poised to reap the benefits of the members’ collective years of sweat equity. Brandon Hemley (also from Rule of Thumb) propels the music on drums, and Mark Marvelous rounds out the band on keyboards and guitar. All four members sing in various combinations of shared lead and background vocals. john dickey / guitar john parsons / bass brandon hemley / drums mark marvelous / keys & guitar Upcoming Show Tuesday March 14th — Bill TBD Bottom Of The Hill 1233 17th Street San Francisco CA 94107Read more »
