Canadian rock trio The Dirty Nil will come crashing through DC’s Rock and Roll Hotel on Wednesday, September 14th. Hailing from Ontario, this three-piece group has a reputation for being loud and destructive, in a good way. The self proclaimed “rock-n-roll band” is on a nationwide tour sharing their much-anticipated debut album, Higher Power.
Childhood friends Luke Bentham (guitar, vocals) and Kyle Fisher (drums) had been playing together for years, mainly for fun, until bassist Dave Nardi joined them in 2009. The band toured and played around North America, releasing singles here and there. The Dirty Nil eventually signed with record label Dine Alone and released Higher Power earlier this year.
The album has 11 tracks and includes some of their more recent singles such as “Zombie Eyed” and “Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü.”
The video from “Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü,” shot using a VHS video camera, gives you a taste of what you might experience at a Dirty Nil show. This will not just be a show to hear, but a show to feel. When I say “feel”, I’m not talking just feeling the emotions of the music. What I mean is that by all accounts you are going to physically FEEL this music. Be warned: your ears may be left ringing for a few days after this concert. It should be a great atmosphere and a fun time. Doors are at 7, show starts at 8. I look forward to seeing you there.
The Dirty Nil are opening for Billy Talent! So get there early to catch them. Tickets are available online.
