November 23 – Cleveland – Peabody’s (216) is a hardcore metal band with harsh vocals that formed in early 1997, by members of Cleveland, Ohio’s Alternative Metal band Mushroomhead.They play the most shows in and around Cleveland. They played their first show on 6/27/97 at Peabody’s Downunder in Cleveland. Their first release was a split 7″ vinyl with Schnauzer in the summer of ’97. (216)’s side contained two tracks, Step Up and This Resistance, that were recorded live while they were rehearsing on 6/19/97 at their practice space. They recorded their full-length CD on March 2nd & 3rd of 1998, and it was released a couple of months later. (216) used to open up for Mushroomhead shows once in awhile, but the double set got to be too much for the guys to do this all of the time. (216) got a huge response and prevailed as the top Mushroomhead side project…soon headlining their own shows.
