Erase Errata was a band from San Francisco, California. They often name experimentalists such as Captain Beefheart, The Fall, and the Minutemen as inspirations. The group favors improvisation as a compositional tool and each of their performances is a unique manifestation of established songs. Erase Errata formed in Oakland, California in 1999 and quickly earned national attention after the release of their first eponymous 7" and via tours with electro grrl band Le Tigre and Japanese noise rockers Melt Banana. In 2015, after 16 years as a band, the trio comprising of Jenny Hoyston, Bianca Sparta, and Ellie Erickson felt like it was the time to say goodbye with their final release, Lost Weekend.
