This little ditty was found on the benefit for 'Living Tomorrow Today: A Benefit for Ty Cambra' compilation I bought for the primary reason of obtaining Alkaline Trio's "Dead End Road", which was unreleased at the time. I was also a BIG fan of Saves The Day at that point in my life - so THE TRAVESTY STAR appealed to me instantly.
As far as I know they only released this one song. In the early days of the internet I remember that I actually contacted these guys and they were hoping to record something, but obviously nothing materialized.
THE TRAVESTY STAR, at least in this song, played a nice concoction of indie rock and pop-punk. Combine This Town Needs Guns and Saves The Day and you're pretty much there. Or just listen to it below and decide for yourself.
