Nervous and the Tics is a Williamsburg-based band playing what the group considers "folk punk" music. The three-member group consists of Andre Francis (percussion), Nadia Koz (guitar and vocals), and Jon Smith (guitar). The band was founded in 2016 during an open mic session at Paul's Deli in New Town.
Nervous and the Tics came to the WMBG studio to perform during the Super Sound Showcase sponsored by Retro Daddio. During their radio debut, the band played their original song "Home Sick Home."
