We've posted a demo of a new song, "The Subtle Knife," from the upcoming DB3
album (tentatively titled Ctrl-Alt-Del) at our MySpace
a listen and let us know what you think.
It's not that nothing's going on, just that we're lazy with
the "news" page. Mike moved to Hawaii, so we're seeking
a new drummer. Dan went to Nashville and recorded "Maybe
I'll Fly" with John Mark Painter for a feature length film
to be released sometime this year. Dan is currently writing
and recording a new album to be released under the DB3
moniker. You will likey.
DB3 has been invited to play the Midwest
Entertainment Conference in Lexington, KY (Nov. 4-7). Friday,
Nov. 5, 9pm, Short Street Lounge.
Dan has been invited to play as part of an acoustic
showcase at Whiskey Dick's at Cleveland
and 161. There will
be many other solo acts from local Columbus bands. Sets will
be 20 minutes. But the real reasons Dan's playing? Dollar drafts
and $.25 wings!!

You kids are gonna love this album. Jason White is
a genius (DB3's not too shabby either). Yesterday, we had
Jon Beard lay down a bass groove on "I'm Yer Man"
for old time's sake. Can I just say that I'm so happy to have
him in the DB3 family? I guess I just did.
April 12, 2004

We just got added to the bill for Saturday, February
21st at Skully's
Music Diner, the pretty little venue just across from
Little Brother's between campus and Short North. We're playing
with a band from Chicago called Bottle
of Justus. Never heard of 'em, but evidentally they
toured with O.A.R., so maybe they will bring out the
OSU crowd. See you there.
January 20, 2004
has been added to the High Five show on Saturday, February
7th. This move was facilitated by Chip Midnight of local music
web column Atomic
Ned, who contacted us with a request from Wes Kidd (formerly
of Triple Fast Action) who is now Suffrajett's manager.
This means you now get three bands (Suffrajett, Front
Row for the Meltdown, and DB3) for the price of
one. And now that you know the entire history of that... come
see the show.

Check it out, baby. The new demo sampler is almost
done. Dan still has some tweaking to do, but here's the cover
Hopefully this CD will represent our new sound

attention. Thanks again to Jon Beard for engineering.

December 6, 2003
We've completed a 70's style recording of a few of
our songs. That is to say, we set up some mics in the living
room and recorded live. Plans for the recordings are still
not solidified. The main thing is to get the sound out to
some more venues. We'll keep you posted. Many many thanks
to Jon Beard for engineering; this guy is one super-hero

DB3 takes the People's Choice Award for
Columbus' Aids Rock Ohio 2003! Thanks to all the fans
old and new who showed their support and made us the people's

Down (thanks, Dan Weingartner!).
We are currently negotiating the possibility of going back
into the studio to record a song for an indie label compilation
to be released in October. We will announce the information
here as soon as things are solidified.

Last night at Miani's was great. It started out slow,
but by the end of the night we were looking at about 250 people,
and they were all new faces, so hopefully we made some new
fans (actually, I know we made at least two major fans with
"I'm Alive;" that guy and his girl were going wild
We were entered into a contest at Miani's that is based
on the number of people you can pack into the place on a Sunday
night (bands compete on the Sundays of a given month: whoever
brings in the most people on their night wins the take at
the door for the whole month). So when our night rolls around,
we need EVERYBODY there. Who knows, maybe we could make enough
to get back into the studio...
June 24, 2003
Jonas broke his hand. Dumbass slammed it in a car door
(no Johnny Tightlips and Vinnie the Tree were not involved).
So we are looking for a new base player (Jonas is looking
to concentrate on his studio efforts anyway, and we need someone
who can rock a little harder than he).
