Last Night: Dillinger Escape Plan At Fitzgerald's

Dillinger Escape Plan, By the End of Tonight, Pretty Little Flower, A-dream Asleep Fitzgerald's June 2, 2011

The Dillinger Escape Plan seem to have caused something of an glitch inside their own genre. In spite of being wildly popular, they haven't seen much press compared to the amount of admiration they receive.

The band's recently released fourth studio album, Option Paralysis, has been winning high praise and even landed them a touring gig with the Deftones. That tour came to a close about a month ago, but didn't stop in Houston.

Deftones or not, though there were plenty of fans in attendance Thursday night.
