Two years ago today, The Nude Party performed at The Current's Day Party during SXSW 2019 in Austin, Texas. Here are three songs from that set.

The band's name is a little goofy, but The Nude Party did in fact, at one time, party and play music naked. There was no pun or any serious symbolism attached to the band name, but rather real experiences involving jamming with friends at North Carolina's Appalachian State University, and playing gigs at the local 505 House — often involving nudity.

Although the six-piece band are now performing fully clothed, their music continues to attract fans with a unique mix of country, punk, blues, and psychedelic rock. Inspired by artists such as Lou Reed, the Who, and Booker T and the MG's, the sextet use these influences to create their own style and sound.

In October 2020, The Nude Party released their second album, "Midnight Manor."
