Caught Live: Ryan Howard Of City Center

Ryan Howard of City Center

By Leslie Hampton Published June 8, 2010

Drummer: Ryan Howard

Band:City Center

Venue:The Blank Club, April 14th

Ryan Howard is the drummer for experimental indie pop band, City Center. Maybe it's the rise of band drama, shortage of commented people or the ease of creating music with new technology, but more and more two piece bands are surfacing. Both Ryan and the other half of City Center, Fred Thomas (most known for his previous band, Saturday Looks Good to Me) both play percussion as well as sample beats. An interesting blend of live guitar, drums and electronics.


When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.
