I walked down the hall of 227 St Marks towards the door in the very back where The Dig were getting ready to run through the set they are taking on tour. Behind each wooden door in the hall, I could hear the swirl of muffled practice sets by bands tight enough to be in a place like this. The Dig are certainly tight enough.
I met the band quickly and despite the pleasantness and gratitude they showed to me for coming out to a practice to shoot (my pleasure, by the way), there was an eagerness in the air and I could tell they wanted to get on with it. But this went beyond just the photos or the practice session, these guys are chomping at the bit to hit the road and the stage. Based on what little I got to see – you should be excited. Five years into releasing albums and with their newest LP, Bloodshot Tokyo, they have their sound and stage presence on lock. Make a point to catch these guys while you can still get up close, and lucky for you there’s still a few tickets left for their gig this Saturday (2-25) at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg – get your tickets HERE
