Beginning life as Filthy McNasty (and then just Filthy), Poke is a quartet of veteran musicians that has been around the Greater Cincinnati music scene in some form for over a decade. In 2007, Poke (led by married couple Tom and Julie Judge) finally got around to releasing its first album, Happy Accidents, which showcased the group’s simple, endearing Garage Pop songs which are often slathered in sly humor.
