Last Night, Rocker Stalker said…: the Dig at Rock Shop 9/24

Posted: September 26, 2010 in Entries

There is good, and there is good. The Dig are good. The Rock Shop in Park Slope was bustling with drunken buffoons, sword swallowers, and burlesque dancers when I arrived. A bit confused, especially when the door boy had no idea that there was a free show and almost forced me to pay a $5o cover, I was informed that a beer festival was in the works.  Well, that explained all the red, sweaty faces stumbling up the stairs to the rooftop.

Anyway, when all the pale and dark samples ran out, many beerfest goers were replaced, and it was time for music that drunk and sober people could enjoy. The Dig, looking more fresh-faced than usual after a bit of a break from touring, hit the stage with song after song from Electric Toys and a few brand new tunes that I’m looking forward to owning. Blues driven, bassy riffs and ethereal key board and guitar chords kept the audience was enthused, who moved and cheered at every point of the set. By the end, they demanded one more song which The Dig  satisfied, even adding  an extra encore. Get your tickets for the Mercury Lounge on October 16!
