Crater and the Catalyst - Punk Jazz Melodic Live Act in State College

Crater and the Catalyst Short Info

This dynamic ensemble is devoted to pushing the boundaries of musical form. Drawing from influences as diverse as the Minute Men, Frank Zappa, and math rock artists like Tera Melos, they blend their technical skill to create a sound that is wholly their own. The intricate jazz drumming of Carter Frieje, infused with the militant thrum of Tyler Haas's bass serve as the perfect skeleton for Tommy Gargiulo's nimble guitar and peddle-work.

With a focus on complex rhythm and a zany musical attitude, Crater and the Catalyst crafts an impressive and entertaining atmosphere for fans of any background. Just one listen to 'An Old Friend' off of their 2014 EP is enough to recognize their raw talent and passion for creating music people will love.
