Dash Rip Rock

Dash Rip Rock will bring their "hellbilly" stylings to the East Coast as part of a string of dates for the band in late August. Kicking off in Somerville, MA, look for the country-punks to play a pair of area shows including Saint Vitus Matchless on 8/28 (tickets) and The Saint in Asbury Park, NJ on 8/24 (tickets).

Having released his first album back in 1986 -- a college radio hit at the time -- DRR been making smart, white hot rock n' roll ever since, including his most recent, 2010's Call of The Wild. More recently, Dash was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame along with names like Neville Brothers, Buddy Guy, Louis Armstrong and Fats Domino. That's some company to be brought into. If you're unfamiliar with this 25-year scene veteran, you can stream some of his work below, along with a list of tour dates (which include Voodoo Festival).

This band is awesome. One of the best guitarists around. Those videos don't do them justice. They're the real honkytonk deal.
