Miskatonic has been described as "a potent mixture of new wave and rock and roll," "intensely energetic," and "Cortney Love on mood elevators singing in a sci-fi rock opera." The Boston-based band combines 80s synth and bass vibes, punky guitar textures and powerful rock beats with Elizabeth Firger's infectious, melodic vocals. No wonder Miskatonic is drawing increasing attention from critics, fans and radio stations.

The band's first release, "Let Us Entertain Us," received significant commercial and college airplay - and strong reviews. Northeast Performer wrote, "Miskatonic's bombastically catchy sound is complemented by Firger's sometimes delicate, mostly edgy vocals." The Noise exclaimed, "'Dregs of the World kicks like a page from the new wave book of Johnny Lydon." And, "It's damn near perfect."

In 2008, Miskatonic released the EP, "Favorite Records," which received widespread praise. The Noise wrote, "The band on these three songs is flawless and sparkles with energy, as does the production." 

Featuring former members of Cheater Pint, Calendar Girl and Ultrabreakfast, Miskatonic has drawn crowds to top Boston venues including Avalon, The Middle East, The Hard Rock Cafe, TT the Bears and Harper's Ferry. The band has shared the stage with well-known local and national acts, including The Dollyrots, Imperial Teen, the Acrobrats, The Great Bandini, and The Downbeat Five.
