Saxon Pub

This performance is part of the showcase that starts on Saturday, March 16at Saxon Pub

Pop, alternative, and glam rock updated with a vibrant spirit of celebration: A salvo of hook heavy singles, stylized videos, and ambitious cross-country touring introduces The Dirty Shirts, an exuberant new band from Dallas, Texas. Respondent with black leather cool and sequined swagger, The Dirty Shirts exude charisma and empathy behind dark glasses, with lead singer and songwriter Nick Santa Maria at the helm. The Dallas-born artist presents an update of glam rock infused with a contemporary sonic sheen that mirrors the music, described by KXT radio as “…sweaty hedonism in the smoky haze of last call.” Debuting in 2021 but born of the pandemic, The Dirty Shirts released their debut album In The Get Up From The Get Go in 2022. National radio airplay for singles “Detonator” and “Please Me” (feat. Remy Reilly), served as an engaging introduction to an indelible musical signature as the band played across the nation. The band has recently recorded their follow-up to their debut record, with plans to release new music every month starting in April 2024, with the double LP set to follow in early 2025.
