Even In Blackouts

Hometown: Chicago, IL (USA)


Even in Blackouts, known occasionally by the acronym EiB, were an acoustic pop–punk band from Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 2002 by veteran pop–punk guitarist John 'Jughead' Pierson following the demise of the pop–punk band Screeching Weasel, for which Pierson had performed since 1986. The core of the band is formed by lead vocalist Liz Eldredge and Pierson, although a number of additional musicians have performed with the band. Even in Blackouts have been lauded by critics and fans alike for their musicianship and sense of innovation in bringing pop–punk to a new format. The energy and intimacy of Even in Blackout's live performances have attracted particular acclaim.
