Originally named “Pull”, Tangent Transmission formed in the late summer of 2009 by both Sam Sobo and Dugan Cruz. How and when they met is not quite clear. Why they met however is painfully obvious. After playing and rehearsing together for a couple months while doing the best they could to continue working and going to school, they booked a show at a local venue titled “The Cobalt Café”. The show was mediocre at best, though they made some friends integral to their growth and it didn’t stop them from doing what they love.
