  3. The Street Eaters are a two-piece, wife-and-husband band from Berkeley,California. They play loud, weird, hooky DIY punk. It’s arty enough to be exploring and punk enough to get to the point; they’re a refreshing balance/counterbalance of quick charges and expansive sonic landscapes. 


    You may know Megan March from Neverending Party, Younger Lovers, and Wild Assumptions. You may know John Geek from Fleshies, Triclops! or Harbinger. Or you may not know any of those bands. Just rest comfortably knowing that two long-time DIY music makers are putting out exciting music, that they tour relentlessly, and they’re very approachable, down-to-earth folks who have very tight bond to both one another and the music that they make together.

    Megan and John were interviewed at the Razorcake HQ in Highland Park. A full interview went into Razorcake’s 10 Year Anniversary issue, #65.
