Days N' Daze: The Most Charming Riot of All Time

Each week, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to sheaserrano@gmail.com.

Meet Days N' Daze.

They look sweet, right? They're not. They're a goddamn menace; more violent than the Femmes, more poguesy than the Pogues. They're a frothy, malicious, frenetic band of music mutants. And they are absolutely perfect.

Their low-fi bombast is erratic but still entirely consumable, which is a marvelous trick to be able to pull off. The vocals are better than the instrumentation and the instrumentation is better than the vocals and, yeah, okay, that doesn't make sense in the traditional linear universe but that's because DN'D doesn't appear to exist in a traditional anything.

Just read the interview and listen to the music and give them all of your money when you see them.
