Josh 'Mudd' Muddiman (vocals, guitar) and Joshua Howard (guitar, vocals) had been playing together for years when they met Matt 'Mook' McCormick (bass, vocals), Elaina Brown (keys, vocals) and Alan Topolski (drums, vocals) and Shoot Out the Lights was born.  The Cincinnati band decided to stick fairly close to home until their self-titled album was released on March 19th.  Now the band is scheduled to be the Artists in Residence at the Southgate House in July and will be doing some regional touring.
