If you're expecting the nudity and flying bodily fluids of previous D4 shows, you might be disappointed this time. Yes, bass player St. Patrick once entertained a Creepy Crawl audience by doing a headstand in the club's full toilet. And yes, his "Fruit Cocktail" routine was a favorite of audiences nationwide. But Dillinger Four seem to have tired of life as a sideshow act, and their songs pack enough thrills to make even the slackest-jawed yokel forget all about St. Patrick's naked escapades.
Dillinger Four unites bookworms and burnouts and everybody in between in a shared devotion to great, great music. In the fragmented punk scene, where subgenres and minimovements draw ever-finer lines in the sand, we need more bands like this one.
