Invictus Picks -- Goddard -- N/S

Invictus Picks -- Goddard -- N/S


Goddard is a three piece band that's named after a rocket scientist. Not just any rocket scientist, but Robert H. Goddard who happened to grow up in the house across the street from members Jason and Anne in Worcester. How's that for props? Not only do they name their rock band after a local hero, but they also dive in headfirst to cultivate and perpetuate a scene. Jason and Anne met their drummer Dan while they were working on the project DC-FIY the goal being to purchase a warehouse to start an all ages DIY venue in Worcester. Although the warehouse never turned up, these guys threw countless all-ages DIY shows and continue to play great, mostly all-ages shows like the one a few weeks ago at the Flywheel in Easthampton.


Here is “N/S,” a track off their EP. They're influences are bands like HUM, The Pixies and Drive like Jehu. They have a lot of plans: first, a mini-tour in the mid-west next week. Then, into the studio to record a full length and then they're off to Brazil to play some festivals. Wow. Don't waste any time guys!
