The Great White North has many fine exports – Bombardier, Amabilis Fir, Jean Coutu… and their oh so precious and sparsely tapped Oil. But perhaps the fairest is the Vancouver-spawned DAG.
On tap 24/7 in its many varietals since the early ‘00s, Gern Blanzden, Unikron, White n Shitty II and the neglatory Two Dollar Bill facemelt blues standards, krusticize shmuck punk glippets, and pack an arsenal of nugatory covers on call for blank discharge at will.
“Call it what you want - a novelty act, a parody or tongue-in-cheek performance art gone awry - DAG stirs up a loud, joyous ruckus every time it takes the stage… the members unleash a bracing blend of punk, glam and rock n roll with a fury, keeping a sturdy groove amid the turmoil.” -Tim Finn, KC Star
“A delightful nightmare onstage. Although their getups were entertaining, they hardly needed them. Their performance and music were thrilling, full of vocal and guitar effects, and stimulated the crowd into a frenzy.” - I Heart Local Music
