Welcome to the Official SlingshotVenus Web Site

This is the official slingshotVenus web site. A darkly textured pop nightmare, slingshotVenus is a loud, tarnished cyberpunk maelstrom. Easy to enter, and difficult to escape. Founded by Tobias Hawkins III (Former Laundry frontman and original drummer for Counting Crows), Patrick McEvoy (Guitar) and Richard Doporto (Bass/Engineer), slingshotVenus is a SF Bay Area based hard, modern-alternative rock band.

SSV is also a collective of musicians from very diverse backgrounds who have smashed their talents together to form the band whose site you are surfing. We might be riding the silver and green tinfoil boat through an apocalyptic tunnel of surreal delights, or we might just be screwing with you. Find out for yourself...
