Full Bio: 

For the past two years they've been preparing for enthusiastic audiences, including a bill at last Summer's Poolapalooza Festival. They have since played shows at Gypsy Sally's in Georgetown, and Sauf Haus in downtown DC on 18th St. Technology has been a key part of the experience, enabling them to have a larger sound than the three of them would be able to produce on their own, using iPads and an ancient Macbook Pro to sequence additional tracks while they play live. This advanced hardware has enabled He's Not Here to remain a trio. They largely avoid the cheesy pop of the '80, preferring the hard-driving, darker side of classic new wave tunes.
