A friend of CHS referred the Dig to me and said they’d be an excellent band for our series. When I listened to their mp3s online, they struck me right away through my laptop speakers, a rare feat even for new material by some of my all-time favorite/older bands. I also noticed that they tour relentlessly, have been at it for a fairly short period of time, and had a show coming up as direct support for the new Oasis, a.k.a. Beady Eye. Figured they'd nail the live session format no problem... These guys are NY-based, but are around Chicago enough where I thought they were a Chicago band. In fact, we're welcoming them for yet another Chicago show at Schubas this Thursday 9/22/11. I sadly wasn’t at the session due to some family commitments out of town, but happy that the CHS guys did a killer job capturing all the sights and sounds that the Dig made in my basement this past June. And perhaps I can get the live Dig experience this Thursday.
