Gift of the Day 8/14

 

“Dear and the Headlights is an Indie-Rock band from Tempe/Chandler, Arizona. Joel Marquard (guitarist and keyboardist) and Ian Metzger (lead vocals and acoustic) started playing together in roughly 2002. Marquard convinced Metzger that they needed to start a band, but Ian was reluctant due to a somewhat negative experience with the Christian band called Justifide he co-founded in 1999. He finally gave in and Marquard quickly found PJ Waxman, who initially, started out playing drums for the band until they realized what a talented guitar player he was. PJ is also known for voicing the character of “Plucky”, which is Ducky’s little sister in the animated film “The Land Before Time”, though it didn’t make it into the film officially. “-last.fm
