  • Night Sabers
    Night Sabers

    Remember when musician bios used to matter? Yea, we don't remember that time very well either. Did they ever really matter? Someone could have a great press kit, and the music could suck. Actually, the music sucked a lot of the time.

    Let's just cut to the chase. Night Sabers are a nerd pop band that varies in size and members show to show. With songs about everything from Adventure Time to anime and nerd culture in general things never have time to get boring. Music should be unpredictable, rules are meant to be broken, and pop music doesn't have to be horrible. Let's do all of these things together.

    Night Sabers are here to have a good time. Do you want to have a good time? Come to our show, and dance with us! Come to our show, and sing with us! Come to our show, and make an ever lasting memory with us! See you soon!

    Night Saber’s debut album “Volume One” drops in mid 2016 on Lack of Talent Records.
