Peter Cortner and Doug Carrion, former members of Dag Nasty, joined forces with Mark Phillips (Down by Law) as Field Day, and the band is making its live debut across the country this summer with new music to follow in 2020. Field Day performs at Black Cat on Friday, July 12, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Doug and Peter performed on Dag Nasty’s iconic recordings Wig Out at Denko’s (Dischord Records) and Field Day (Giant Records), and played some 300 shows throughout the United States and Canada in the late ’80s. These recordings are credited as cornerstones of what was eventually termed melodic hardcore, and inspired new bands like Pennywise and Rise Against.
In 2018, there was a conversation between Brian Baker, Doug and Peter regarding how best, if at all, to perform Wig Out and Field Day songs live. With scheduling and geographic conflicts unavoidable, in 2019, it was agreed that Doug and Peter would forge ahead under the name Field Day, to avoid confusing Dag Nasty fans or promoters.
Doug said this is “a perfect time to revisit previous material for the fans, and a way to continue exploring music.”

“Trying” from Wig out @ Denko’s!
Favorite song on Wig Out at Denko’s would be the title track for me.
Wig out at Denko’s but also looking for new music to follow in 2020
I plead unfamiliarity, but I am enjoying the snippets I am hearing now. I’d like to hear more.
First found Dag Nasty with Wig Out album. “Trying” simple yet very powerful message. From Field Day CD “Trouble Is” and “All Ages Show”.
I’m looking forward to seeing all three bands!
