This innocuous little listing is momentous for me. It marks my return to music after a 15-year hiatus (no, I’m not in the pic, that’s the Trashcan Sinatras).
Dot Dash is my first new band since I left Adam West in 1995, essentially ‘quitting’ music. Besides me it’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Terry Banks and bassist Hunter Bennett (of Julie Ocean fame) and drummer Danny Ingram (who needs no introduction, at least in DC circles). I’m not sure how to describe the music, but it’s generally brisk punk-pop with an interesting ratio of bright melodies to dark undercurrents.
Of course nothing could match the feeling of hitting the stage at the Modest Proposal reunion recently, with my mod-mates from the 1980s, but that was different. Looking back more than forward.
(Gulp) So here we go… I don’t where we’re heading, or how we’ll get there, but it starts Monday, June 14th at Rock and Roll Hotel.
