Sacramento, CA 95814
Following drug addiction, band beef and such successes as being included in the Rock Band video game (the song “Lemon Meringue Tie” off its first album Downtown Battle Mountain), Sacramento’s own post-hardcore gem Dance Gavin Dance isn’t calling it quits any time soon. With the anticipation of a small European tour through London in May, a confirmed spot on this year’s Vans Warped Tour and the release of its new album Downtown Battle Mountain II, the guys of DGD continue to grow in popularity both locally and worldwide. I Wrestled a Bear Once opens the all-ages show. 1417 R Street, www.facebook.com/dancegavindance.
