Dead Tooth

Mar 17, 2022

9:00pm – 9:40pm CT


Through big hooks and brazen lyrics Dead Tooth's sound has a welcome discordance. The group fronted by Zach James churns out dystopian post punk that you might hear at a posthumous dinner party where Ian Curtis and Herman Hesse are swilling whiskey and cracking jokes. As DIIV's lead guitar aficionado Andrew Bailey splays counter melodies with the swagger of Bernard Sumner and Tony Iommi, James as a front man shouts and moves like a hybrid of Nick Cave and Guy Piciotto, creeping and shaking bent with a raw frenetic energy. Bailey and James feed off each others madness, making for one of the best stage shows in Brooklyn
