At an age when most people are just beginning their high school
careers, the members of the rock band Holden had already
successfully released their first album, Hot Lunch Wednesdays.
Subject of a story written in The Independent in 2005, their name
comes from the main character Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the
Rye. Together since 2001, Santa Barbara County natives Tom
Cantillon, Johnny Puailoa, and Dan Moore, all 20 years old, began
touring after their first album’s success. Since those days of
yore, their accomplishments have been impressive: Performances at
more than 200 high schools around the country, more than 10,000
copies sold of their four albums, and 41,000-plus online downloads.
They even run their own merchandise sales, Web site, and bookings.
Despite all the hard work, they managed to graduate from high
school just weeks after returning from a tour. They make a
homecoming on Wednesday, February 1, with a show at SOhO. Merrier
the More and The Hanks will be opening. Call 962-7776 for the $10
tix.  — Patrick Brogan
