    NOSTALGIC DISTORTION has been added as the opening act for the FOX / STRAIGHTAWAY show at the WHITE MOUNTAIN CHALET in BERLIN, NH on Saturday, OCTOBER 19TH, 2013! ND founder/bassist/co-frontman Ryan Byrne was introduced to the music of FOX as a pre-teen when the band was renting vans from his father's car-rental business. "They were mentors of mine!" Byrne says of FOX. "They used to let me join them on stage with my saxophone when they were playing dances at our high school." Several years later in 1994, the 19-year-old Byrne was recording some demos (which would eventually become ND's first EP, H.I.C.K.) at The Spare Room recording studio in Bethlehem, NH and was all too excited to have FOX bassist Steve Galipeau lending his producing/engineering expertise to the project. Byrne was also a member of TAKE 5 (the house band at the Town & Country Inn & Resort in Shelburne, NH) for about a year alongside STRAIGHTAWAY drummer Gus Gagne. So once again, Byrne is all too excited for the chance to have ND warm up the crowd for his longtime musical mentors/friends in FOX/STRAIGHTAWAY!!! ND's set will start at about 8PM so come early and prepare to enjoy an evening of great music amongst great friends!!!
