Founded in Grand Forks, ND in 1997, Straphanger drives the ladies crazy with their hard driving indie rock sound, and their utter dedication to cheap beer made in Minnesota.



  • Bassist Brian Schill's bass setup is well known as "ridiculous".
  • Straphanger's tour van, known as "Old Paint", and was purchased from a man well known as "Farmer P", creator of "Farmer P's Tractor Tunes" and (also a zine called "Fresh Cow Pie"), compilation CD series from the 1990's, which featured local artists and gained underground and overseas attention.
  • For years, the band would always end performances with the notoriously improvised and feedback-laden "Control Your Field", which in the middle of the song, band members changed instruments, made things up, switched back and ended the song where they last left off.


  • Countless in Grand Forks in the late 90's, including Kafe Kosmos, Walsh Stock, BRIDGES protests, and many others
  • Many at Ralph's in the late 90's - early 2000's.
