Summer Camp 2013 Artist Roster McCabe Announces Final Shows

In a surprising announcement made on Tuesday, December 3rd, Roster McCabe announced via their facebook pageĀ that this weekend’s show at The Cabooze in Minneapolis (Dec 7) will be their last ever in Minneapolis, and after the rest of their December tour dates, the band will be no more. Roster McCabe originated out of Minneapolis, so high expectations are in order for this weekend’s gig. Here is the video announcement:

Although a comical video indeed, it’s a surprising move from this high energy band that was just starting to hit their stride. I have been the self-proclaimed #1 Roster McCabe fan since I first discovered these hairy guys at Summerfest (Milwaukee) in 2010. I’ve seen them on 20 different occasions at 9 different venues throughout the Midwest, including last year at Summer Camp, where Roster McCabe headlined the Camping Stage on Thursday and Friday night, as well as a late night show in the VIP Lounge.

So what’s next for these electrockers? Hard to say, but I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of Alex Steele, Michael Daum, Jeff Peterson, and Scott Mullenberg.
