Top 5 Feature: Coxey's Army

  Coxey's Army formed in central Ohio in the fall of 2019 with the intent of producing its own brand of positive, community driven punk rock. As the founding lineup was finalized in the spring of 2020, the band's beginnings were heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Determined not to let the pandemic stop them, Coxey's Army worked tirelessly for a year laying a foundation for the band. Taking their name from an early 20the Century slang term referring to a ragtag band of society's underclass, Coxey's Army explores themes of hard work and perseverance accompanied by driving punk guitars and hints of Americana and Celtic music.  SHOWS: Since their live performance debut in early 2022, Coxey's Army have performed as part of numerous lineups. You will have a chance to see Coxey's Army this Friday, May 17 as part of Migraines' 32nd Anniversary Show with The Give-Ups at Blind Bob's (430 E. 5th St., Dayton, Ohio 45402) and this Saturday, May 18 with A
