TOP nachos:

Live at Crowbar, Fortitude Valley, 19 July 2019

Formed in 2016 in Queens, New York, by singer/guitarist Eli Frank and drummer Kenny Hauptman, TOP nachos bring a strong element of anarchic comedy to their music, especially their live shows. In March 2016 the band released their debut EP, titled “EP”, followed by a split single with The Rizzos in August 2018 and the album “Dank Side of the Moon” in September 2018, released on King Pizza Records.
