Double Date was a band formed when two dating couples (Susan Cowsill and Peter Holsapple along with Vicki Peterson and Gary Eaton) played gigs in the LA club circuit in the early 1990's.
Drummer John Covertino (who played with Giant Sand) was added to complete the group.
Double Date was known to have sat in with the Continental Drifters at their Tuesday 1992 Raji's shows. Gary was a part of the Drifters at the time, but Vicki, Susan, and Peter were yet to become official members.
In 1997, at Dog Hair Martini studio, Double Date recorded one single for Granstanka Records as part of their Thirteen Years of Loosing Money box set. Thirteen Years of Loosing Money included singles by Melvins, Redd Kross, Germs, White Flag and Double Date.
