Terry Banks (guitar, vocals), Steve Hansgen (lead guitar), Hunter Bennett (bass), and Danny Ingram (drums) are well known to DC indie pop admirers as Dot Dash! They also are known for giving away a free song or two, and they have gifted us with another prior to their show at DC9 on Wednesday, July 19, when they open for English indie duo Ultimate Painting.
To date, Dot Dash have released five albums on Canadian indie label The Beautiful Music. Like their other albums, their most recent, Searchlights, is available via Bandcamp. The power poppers are currently offering a free download of the track “Summer Lights” on Bandcamp.
