Fringe Music in the Library :: Park Snakes

Fronted by Argentinian writer, Nenet Nenet, DC’s trio Park Snakes (formed by Nenet, Jason Coile and Van Hillard) finds their true motivation opening a provocative, yet productive, dialogue with audiences of all ages. Lyrics tackling alienation, ambiguity, desire and the possibilities of love float on top of spiky riffs and propulsive drums, bringing together the swamp and the city untold: a tale of rock noir.
