STAG's Rock 'n Roll Circus

When you think of the cheeky power-pop trio Presidents of the United States of America, what's the last musical genre you'd equate them with? If you answered '70s acid rock, well, you'd be absolutely accurate. Yet President Andrew McKeag's new trio Hard Roller, which includes Vendetta Red vet Jonah Bergman and Triple Door booker Scott Giampino, plays precisely that brand of music, according to STAG frontman Ben London. Thus, STAG's 6th Annual Rock and Roll Circus at Shoreline's stellar Darrell's Tavern should provide PUSA hounds with a rare opportunity to catch McKeag playing songs about something other than fruit. If that's not enough, rumor has it London is going to play STAG's entire set in a Santa suit. With Sterling Loons, The First Times, Gavin Guss, DJ AOR. MIKE SEELY
