We Came From Space is a small collective of super hero types. We Came From Space is flesh and blood guys that do what they can to bring a little light, heat, and volume to a sometimes dark, chilly, and silent world.
Now, we here at WCFS are aware that the concept of a ‘regular’ super hero is novel and does not fit into most people’s conveniently standard way of thinking. Relax; there is no wearing of capes or leaping of tall buildings with us (but one of those underground lairs would really kick ass). We will leave that to the ‘Super’ super heroes (maybe that’s you!) that wear capes and leap tall buildings (and have totally cool underground lairs).
We Came From Space uses loud rock and roll to generate righteous vibes and good time grooves! We are free thinkers in life and stand shoulder to shoulder in the certainty that MUSIC STILL MATTERS. It’s true! Someone’s just written it.
We Came From Space doesn’t fly the flag of any particular musical genre (although the set list is REALLY light on country-opera) and are proud of the poppy, proggy, punky, rocky, songs we’ve written. Life has taught us that limitations are nothing if not ummm…. limiting. So, to that end, WCFS defies easy musical classification. If it rocks, it’s right. Nobody puts We Came From Space in a corner!! Each member contributes to the writing, arranging, and overall rocket sauce that keeps the heat on here at WCFS.

Country musician Kevin “Slim” Forsythe launched his dream of establishing a live country music variety show on Saturday with the shooting of the pilot show "Live at Nied's Hotel" in Lawrenceville.
About 50 top donors to his two-month Kickstarter campaign were on hand as Mr. Forsythe performed with the house band, The Beagle Brothers, with special guest singer Molly Alphabet.
The campaign started in April and brought in $10,000, enough to hire a crew to produce a 40-minute show. Mr. Forsythe plans to post parts to YouTube, make a DVD and pitch it as a pilot to local TV channels.
