BIO

XDS, formerly known as Experimental Dental School, is a two-piece that plays a unique type of Psychedelic Dance-Punk music. XDS has toured internationally, and has shared a stage with the likes of Deerhoof, Liars, Deerhunter, Joe Laly (Fugazi) and Spoon. The duo began playing music together in 1998, and after having gone through some lineup and location changes over the years, has come to achieve the practiced, honed sound they have today.
