The Dig In at East Side Club
September 3 @ 2:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Every so often, Madison will play host to a solitary quasi-fest that’s too big to be considered a regular show and boasts a lineup too enticing to miss. On Saturday, September 3, The East Side Club will be notching in another instance of this mega-bill structure with “The Dig In,” featuring five bands and a DJ—WORT Production Director and longtime Madison music staple Aaron Scholz—who will break up the interstitial setup/tear-down times by spinning an assortment of records. Other highlights on the bill include alt-Americana stalwarts Free Dirt and the mesmeric ambient-folk artist Def Sonic, who has been booking aggressively in Madison and reliably delivering genuinely memorable sets. Redshift Headlights, a fuzzy, post-punk-indebted act from the Fox Valley, will be making a full-band appearance, as will the dry-witted and disarming singer-songwriter Nick Brown and inimitable new-wave weirdo Educational Davis. —Steven Spoerl
