Get To Know Me: Save Bandit

The eighth year of local music festival, VanFest, is taking place on Saturday, August 25 at Royal Arch Masonic Park in Maple Valley. To celebrate the little fest that could, we're spending the next two months highlighting the bands playing VanFest 8. Today, get to know local quartet Save Bandit.

Save Bandit formed in late 2015 with the express purpose of destroying emo. Nik and I (Jeff) used to run a radio show out of PLU’s student radio station called Finding Emo. We acquired a near-encyclopedic knowledge of real and fake emo, and after three years we both came to a single conclusion: There are too many emo bands. We’re here to put a stop to it. So we started Save Bandit to officially end emo forever.
