Though they were formed in Eugene, OR while in college, Soccer Babes performs all over the PNW! Most of their following resides in Eugene, but has since spread to Portland, Washington, San Diego, and in between. This trio thrives on performing at local venues, by sporting a small business outlook – instilled in them, as one of the band members is Deborah and John’s son!
The Babes have a unique sound, combining small aspects of punk and metal, with a jazzy, melodic (at some points almost psychedelic), feel. Most of the song writing is done by their guitarist Kevin McDonald, however he gives Matt (bass) and Myles (drums) freedom to write their own parts. With a couple west coast tours under their belts, they’re hoping to get back on the road for another tour scheduled in September.
Just before their most recent show, Soccer Babes came to Paperjam to print some stickers and flyers! Here is the outcome:
