It feels like it's summer in...February. With hectic personal schedules, D4 have limited their recent local shows to annual July 4th events. However, with Philly hardcore idols Paint It Black on a rare mini-tour, Dillinger Four are going to shake off the rust and share the bill. Odds are favorable that Erik and Billy will look very drunk, Paddy will say something ridiculous, and Lane will twirl many a drumstick. Typically sets contain scattered material that covers the band's entire catalog, going all the way back to the mid-'90s. Like D4, Paint It Black (ex-Lifetime and Kid Dynamite) don't hit the road often—this being their first time in Minneapolis since 2005—and the band bring a powerful brand of hardcore fueled by their pummeling rhythm section and quick guitar work with just enough melodic breakdowns to keep it moving along. 18+.
