Vender & The Cobras is the solo moniker of Chicago musician Matt Beard (Friends of the Bog.) Matt's art has been seen on stages across the country and internationally in Canada and South Korea. 

In live sets Beard is backed by Patrick Budde (Perfect Posture, The Preservatory) and a rotating collective of Chicago artists and music makers. Cobras songs come out from the broken place and attempt to fit the pieces back together.
