RITTER – Alone – Live at Kutztown University

RITTER – Alone – Live at Kutztown University

On this April day in 2004, we had the privilege of opening for The Starting Line just as they were catching fire on mainstream radio. This was definitely the largest crowd the band ever played in front of, clocking in at 1200+. I think we did well, though our very first note we played to [...]

RITTER – February – @ Musikfest 2005

RITTER – February – @ Musikfest 2005

This was an incredible show. All the stars aligned perfectly (literally and figuratively). It was a chance to play at a great time slot at Musikfest right where Myspace.com was all the rage. However, it was just before the period that every band in the world had a Myspace page. When you posted a show [...]

RITTER – Free (official music video)

RITTER – Free (official music video)

This was a video my buddy Moose and I put together. It took a really long time, but well worth it. Turning the VHS footage into digital footage was a challenge, but it worked out. Most of the footage is from our East Coast tour with Grover Dill. I had a mohawk.

RITTER – Eleven Thirty – Live @ Allentown Legion Hall

RITTER – Eleven Thirty – Live @ Allentown Legion Hall

I think out of all the shows I put on myself, this was by far the most fun. Bigwig headlined the show, which made for a killer group of kids in the crowd. My friend Brad filmed this show and I loved how he stood behind us to film. He’s also really tall, which [...]

RITTER – Alone (official music video)

Our good friend, Jon Biddle filmed us at the top of his parents’ garage. To say we had no idea how magnificent of a filmmaker Jon was would be the biggest understatement in the history of the band. The garage attic really had a great darkness to it. It was weird to play along to [...]

RITTER – February – @ Khyber, Philly, “Last” Show

RITTER – February – @ Khyber, Philly, “Last” Show

This was quite an emotional night.  Nevermind that it was our ‘last performance’, a bunch of awful stuff happened to each band member at one point in the evening… which the exception of me.  Dockray’s car got towed, Justin was without his main guitar and Andrew was very thristy.  I guess I was bummed because [...]

RITTER performs “Youth vs. You” in Philly

This was from the glorious RITTER reunion show on my 30th birthday.  This might be my favorite RITTER song.  Ok, I thought about again. It is my favorite RITTER song.

RITTER / Skinflints Reunion Highlights (Philly, 8/6/2011)

RITTER / Skinflints Reunion Highlights (Philly, 8/6/2011)

The coolest part of this video is that I stole all of these clips from folks that were gracious enough to upload to Facebook.  Easily the best night of my life and the perfect way to ring in my 30s.
