The MIKE DILLON Band is more punk rock than you!!! Shit, 21 yr old Carly is more punk rock than you! This show was everything you want to be and more. First set was blistering! Dark, scary, aggressive. It was straight up mean. Scared the granola right out of the hippies there for The Revivalists. This band is so tight and in your face, you would think they have played together for years. They didn’t miss a beat. Went straight for the throat. Left people in shock. Funky Batz did a good job providing people f or Mike D. and crew to play 2 mean sets. Guess because Mike plays in Galactic, GAT, DKG’s, Les Claypool, etc., people think he is doing some jam band thing that caters to hula hoops, lava lamps and bead building ceremonies. This is not a drum circle. This is PUNK ROCK. Ok…. AfroPsychoLoungePunkFunkHipHopWorldBeatJazz with an emphasis on PUNK.
