Dillinger Four will be celebrating 25 years at The First Avenue Mainroom on Saturday, December 14th for a can’t miss show.
Dillinger Four are from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They formed in 1994. In terms of importance, they are to the ‘90s and ’00s what Black Flag was to the ’80s (without the Grateful Dead worship). It’s not only what they are, a great band, it’s what they’ve helped inspire, build, and represent. They’re an earthquake. They’re the Redd Foxx- mixed with the Chalmers Johnson of punk rock.
Pegboy will be joining D4. Pegboy is a US-American punk band from Chicago, founded 1990 by John Haggerty (who played guitar with Naked Raygun), along with his brother Joe Haggerty (drums), Larry Damore (vocals/guitar), and Steve Saylors (bass). Both Damore and Saylors had been members of Chicago-based hardcore band Bhopal Stiffs, whose 1987 demo had been produced by John Haggerty.
Also joining in on the fun will be The Brokedowns. The Brokedowns started a long time ago in the hills around Elgin, Illinois. What began as friends jamming in Jon’s parent’s basement morphed into four out-of-shape Midwestern working-class dudes who love playing music together and soaking their livers.
Opening up the night is Partial Traces.
