  1. Knapsack

    Knapsack was formed in 1993 by Blair Shehan and Colby Mancasola. Shehan and Mancasola were two high school friends studying at the University of California, Davis. Guitarist Jason Bokros and bassist Rod Meyer completed the lineup. In 1994, the band recorded a single for independent label Goldenrod Records and signed with Alias Records later that year. Their debut album Silver Sweepstakes was released in 1995. They then toured extensively playing with bands such as Pavement, Rocket from the Crypt, Jawbox and Drive Like Jehu. Bokros left the group before the release of their second album Day Three of My New Life in 1997. Rod Meyer left the group after this release and was replaced by Sergie Loobkoff of Samiam. Their third album This Conversation is Ending Starting Right Now was released in 1998. Shehan went on to form The Jealous Sound after the band broke up in 2000. Knapsack is reuniting this fall to mark the 15th anniversary of their final US tour. The band will play several shows, including a stop at the Fest, in Gainesville, Florida, making this their first-ever Florida appearance.
