Okilly Dokilly

by

Ticking off the members of The Simpsons-inspired metal band Okilly Dokilly (yes, really) feels almost like reading a roster of the seven dwarves, Simpsons style: there's Head Ned, Dread Ned, Shred Ned, Bed Ned and Zed Ned, and they're on vocals, drums, guitar, bass and synth, respectively. Red Ned, Bled Ned, Stead Ned, Thread Ned, Dead Ned and Cred Ned have cycled out of the group since its inception in 2015. You almost don't need to listen to the band's self-released album, Howdilly Doodilly (2016), to guess that it's going to be up to some musical mischief when its members hit the Neurolux stage in Boise. Known for wearing signature round specs and green sweaters, the group calls itself "the world's only Nedal band" and pedals songs with lyrics that are almost exclusively Ned Flanders Jr. quotes. Don't be surprised if one of the Neds is caught punching an inflatable donut during the show.
