Long live rock, I need it every night

Concert Preview: The Dig

To be clear, I'm not referring to the xenoarchaeology video game "The Dig," from the mid 90s nor any other ology or video game. Nor am I referring to the excellent rockumentary, "Dig!," that featured the Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Furthermore, I am not referring to Rochester, NY's "the Dig Project," and certainly not California's 90s alt rockers "Dig." I am referring, instead, to NYC's "The Dig."

Confused? Well, The Dig haven't made it easy on themselves by choosing this name, nor by directing folks to a nonexistent website, but what they have done is record a nifty rock-pop EP, Good Luck and Games that you can listen to on their very existent MySpace page.

I've had this EP on my iPod shuffle for the past 3 months, and since my laptop was stolen, didn't even know who I was listening to all the while. Turns out, it's been the elusive The Dig. And all this time, I've been enjoying their tunes. I recommend having a listen.

We'll check out The Dig w/ City Riots & The City Veins at the Black Cat on Tuesday, July 15th ($8 Backstage). If their live performance comes close to their studio work, this promises to be a solid show and your chance to see this heretofore obscure unsigned band. Here's another opinion....

That's a solid line-up for a Tuesday night. A good excuse to get out of the house. City Riots out of Australia seem promising. I like the guitar work on "Favorite TShirt".
