Do you have a friend who plays Jawbreaker’s Biouvac on repeat and is in
the market for current local punk rock to add to their collection? Consisting
of Joe Dorane (vocals/guitar), Larry Spahn (bass/vocals), and Mike Paladino
(drums), Hopeless Otis is a three-piece punk band. Its tight, four-minute
songs tackle fears and aim to bring the positive back into punk rock.
The band members love their local Astoria home.
“You find anything and everything in Astoria; from beer gardens to
the best Indian restaurant in the country, it’s all there,” Spahn said.
Find their 2016 release "Dangerfield" or older releases on their Bandcamp
page at hopelessotis.bandcamp.com. Each energetic track on the record will
turn any bad, sluggish day around. You can also search for Hopeless Otis on
Facebook (HopelessOtisNYC) or Instagram (@hopelessotis).
