Matt Sweeting is a magic maker in Gainesville, FL. He’s been connected to most of what’s cool there, including No Idea, for over 10 years. I can never keep up with all his projects, or which bands he’s currently in, but he’s played with TUBERS, STRIKEFORCE DIABLO, ASSHOLE PARADE, and UTILITY.
Matt set up shows at both the Hardback Cafe (which he co-owned in it’s second empire) and the Utility House before that. He also co-founded Wayward Council. Damn straight.
… Matt, Lauren, and Ellis are about to become a four-piece. Looking forward to meeting the new addition later this year. Good punks with families. Gotta love it! …
