The Baseball Project
With the recent cancellation of the SoundTown music festival, area clubs scrambled to accommodate as many of the scheduled bands into smaller gigs in the area. Add the Baseball Project to that growing list, as the veteran supergroup trades the sprawling outdoors of Somerset for the intimate confines of the 400 Bar. The band originally formed in the early '90s when Scott McCaughey from the Minus 5 and the Young Fresh Fellows bonded with Steve Wynn from Dream Syndicate and Gutterball over their shared love of our national pastime. R.E.M.'s Peter Buck soon joined the baseball-themed project, along with local drummer Linda Pitmon from Zuzu's Petals. The group just released their second album, Volume 2: High and Inside, another collection of songs inspired by the sport that they love. With Castor Coal, Cats Melvin, and Hungry Skinny.
