THE PANTS made music in Burlington, Vermont and surrounding environs between 1994 and 1998. Band members Tom Lawson, Eric Hutchins, Neil Cleary and Pistol Stamen reunited for a sold-out show in May of 2006 at Higher Ground Music Hall in celebration of Seven Days‘ 10th anniversary.

This site is kept by filmmaker Bill Simmon, who has compiled interviews and archival footage of the band in an attempt to capture and communicate some of what made the band so beloved by its fans.

The feature documentary film, High Water Mark: The Rise & Fall of The Pants, is premiering in 2016. A concert film chronicling the band’s triumphant 2006 reunion show will follow soon after. Watch this space for screening, and web-release information.
