Local H Tickets for Sale

Best-known for their unorthodox two-man lineup, hard rock act Local H has made a career out of straddling the fine line between indie and classic rock, cleverly framing their sardonic lyrics with a generous helping of power chords and feedback.

Local H emerged in the early '90s from the Chicago music scene by way of suburban Zion, Illinois, where singer/ guitarist Scott Lucas first met drummer Joe Daniels. The earliest lineups of the band were traditional, with two other members supplying bass and second guitar. But that all changed when Lucas discovered he could play the low strings on his guitar through a bass pickup, thus eliminating the need for a full-time bass player. Soon enough, Local H had slimmed down to a two-piece band. But it was Lucas and Daniels' ability to sound as huge as a complete four-piece lineup that attracted the attention of both fans and labels.

Local H is an indie and punk duo, formed by Scott Lucas (guitar/vocals) and Joe Daniels (drums). The two began playing together in their Illinois high school in 1987. After failed attempts at recruiting a bassist, Lucas took the novel approach of adding bass pickups to his electric guitar.

Local H's first album, Ham Fisted, was released in 1995 to rather mediocre reviews. Their 1996 album, As Good as Dead, contained the popular single "Bound for the Floor" and was certified gold. The 1998 follow-up, Pack Up the Cats, spawned the single "All the Kids Are Right". Unfortunately, the album's chances of success were stifled when their label, Polygram, merged with Universal and the album was all but forgotten during the transition.

The band took a hiatus of several years, during which Daniels left the band. Lucas recruited a new drummer, Brian St. Clair formerly of Triple Fast Action, in 2000. The two released their fourth album, Here Comes the Zoo, in 2002 under the Palm Pictures record label. An EP, No Fun, followed in 2003 and Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles? was released in April 2004 to mixed reviews.

Local H is currently managed by former Triple Fast Action member Wes Kidd for Silent Partner Management.
