Fresh from paying tribute to the late John Stabb (Government Issue, Emma Peel, The Factory Incident, etc.) at Fort Reno on Monday night, the boys in Dot Dash brought their big punk-pop sound to D.C.'s Black Cat tonight in a support set with Wussy. The new one from Dot Dash, the excellent Searchlights, is out now on TheBeautifulMusic.com and it's a helluva record. Playing lots of cuts from that one, the band were on fire tonight as my video below shows. More details on Dot Dash via the official Dot Dash Facebook page.
Wussy delivered an impressive set of American indie of the sort not heard so much these days. Singer Lisa Walker may have been rockin' a Ramones tee but it's bassist Mark Masserly who gets the extra credit for wearing a vintage Superchunk shirt during the gig.
