Because "Apocalypse 99-Cent Store" just sounds stupid.


We are the Apocalypse Five & Dime! Love us! I command you!

With roots in Brooklyn’s unconventional brass band scene, Apocalypse Five and Dime delivers both harmonic, ukulele-laced tunes and wild, foot-stomping numbers backed by sousaphone and marching bass drum.

The seven-piece lineup includes banjo, fiddle, sax, trombone, ukulele, bass drum and tuba, with three members contributing vocals. Songs range widely in feeling and style, drawing on the sounds of Balkan brass bands, old time folk, soul, do-wop, punk, metal, early jazz, and modern dance pop. The band released its first EP, Underwater, in 2010, and will release a full-length debut this spring.
