From the ashes of the Red River District venue formerly known as Barracuda arose a new band that would not be contained by the 2020 lockdown. Featuring members of Unknown Relatives and Think No Think, ruthless protopunk annihilators Narrow Haunts has been performing and terrorizing the locals for two years now, taking on opening slots for bands including Trail of Dead, Sparta and others, and now they’re ready to unleash a 3-song EP in the near future.
