Wet Pet

Music

Boise, ID

Some people describe Wet Pet as a pyramid scheme. That is an unsubstantiated nasty rumor. Due to our out of court settlement we are not obligated to admit any wrong doing. Here at Wet Pet headquarters, we abhor terms like “pyramid scheme” to describe our band. We prefer the term “triangle opportunity”. In Euclidean geometry, any three points, when non-collinear, determine a unique triangle and simultaneously, a unique plane. What does that mean? We have no fucking clue. What we do know is that the 3 points that make the Wet Pet triangle are Steve on drums and keys, Hyrum on bass and vocals, and Phil on guitar and vocals. Those fortunate enough to invest in Wet Pet in the beginning have seen a 10x return on their investment. Shareholders describe Wet Pet’s music as consistent with the tradition of DIY music scene that has emerged from the Pacific Northwest. Overdriven melodies paired with spacious guitar and backed by driving rhythms are balanced out with thoughtful wordplay. At first listen, the sardonic vocal delivery might be interpreted as nihilistic, and at times, you’d be right. “When I go walking through the graveyard at midnight I see a lot of people I’d probably dislike.” However, other times might find us reflecting on love and the absurdity of life that can range from literal to dada-esque. Also remember you join the Wet Pet Platinum Club when you bring three friends to our shows that bring their own three friends.
