Correct! Wrong!

Damon discovered a lack of country music when he came to town in 2006, and started playing solo gigs. Matt Eady and Charlie Hodge were hanging around a lot, and needed a way to pay off their beer tabs. Then we brought in Mike DiSanza and Igor Fiksman to fill out the sound.

2. What year was the band formed?

3. Where did the name "Shitkickers" come from?
