Secret Drum Band performs noise & percussion music. Lisa Schonberg started SDB in 2006 in Olympia, WA; her dreamy yet precise compositions based on ecology and soundscapes contrast with the pulsing momentum of pieces written with Allan Wilson. SDB features Wilson, Schonberg, Sara Lund (hungry ghost/unwound), Pieter Hilton (Typhoon), Anthony Brisson (Psychomagic), and noise musicians Samuel Humans, Alison Clarys and Marcus Fischer. Occasional collaborators include Eddie Bond (Psychomagic), Marisa Anderson & Tara Jane O'neil. SDB has performed at High Desert Test Sites, The Henry Gallery, MOCA Tucson, and for PMOMA. They are touring throughout 2017 in support of their first full-length studio album, which will be released this summer on XRAY Records

Past performers have included Clea Partridge, Heather Treadway, Ben Tyler, Vittoria Buttarini, Aidan Koch, Trina Shaghafi, Papi Fimbres, Rachel Blumberg (M.Ward/Arch Cape), sts (STLS/Haggard), Dana Valatka (AU), Matthew Berger, Sean Sumler, Niles Armstrong (Worn Path/Oak Rot), & Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox Through Water).
