The Undone Sweaters Return With Brand New Episodes
The Undone Sweaters are Brooklyn’s No. 2 Weezer Tribute band, New York’s last punk rock band, and America’s only hope. They begin their second season by dealing with new found fame thanks to a video of their live show going mildly viral. The problems only seem to continue as they venture farther and farther from the practice space they call home.
Throughout season two, hidden pieces of the band’s past begin to surface when an old band-mate of Jim’s tries to break them up (Jared Logan), they encounter a stranger who turns out to be a rock god (Dave Hill), and they’re forced to overcome their fear of bassists when a venue owner makes them play with one (Danny Tamberelli).
The Undone Sweaters are an actual band made up of Jim Tews, Andrew Short, Reid Faylor, and Danny Tamberelli. They play a lot of Weezer, but will occasionally jam on some Steely Dan if the energy is right. They’ve performed at least once in several cool New York venues, did a grueling three-city tour of Ohio, and just came back from San Francisco's Sketch Fest!
The series is written by Jim Tews, Andrew Short, and Reid Faylor<
Directed by Adam Wirtz
Score by Carl Schroeder and The Undone Sweaters
