Tugboat Annie

Tugboat Annie was a US rock band.

Formed in Buffalo, New York in 1990, Tugboat Annie was composed of bassist Jon Sulkow, guitarist Mike Bethmann, guitarist Jim Brown (see "Damn the Man," later replaced by Jay Celeste), and drummer Tim Barrett (replaced in Boston by former Mighty Mighty Bosstones drummer Josh Dalsimer).

Early experiments included a live show at the University at Buffalo's WRUB.

Tugboat Annie became a staple of the early '90s Buffalo scene, playing with bands like Milf at venues like the (pre-fire) Continental and Nietzsche's.

"Stay Inside" plays over the opening credits of the Josh Hamilton-Steve Zahn film Freak Talks About Sex. It also plays over the main menu for the film's DVD.

"More" was chosen as background music for a commercial in 2001.
