LA Music Blog, in conjunction with The Echo, will be presenting a very special show in April. The unstoppable live force that is the Dillinger Escape Plan will be headlining at The Echoplex on April 24th, bringing their unique brand of organized chaos to the LA venue. In support will be notorious Californian punk band Trash Talk, along with local band Retox and the very-much-not-local Shining from Norway.
As a lineup, that’s pretty much unbeatable. You’re liable to be covered in sweat and out of breath even before the main act take to the stage. When I saw the Dillinger Escape Plan at the House of Blues last summer, they arguably sounded better than ever. No mean feat for a band I consider to be the most consistently great live act I’ve ever seen.
The band is currently basking in the reflected glory of more critical acclaim and unprecedented commercial success for their fifth album, One Of Us Is The Killer, which unbelievably made it into the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 on its release in 2012. Check out the disturbing video for the spectacular “When I Lost My Bet” below.
Tickets to the Dillinger Escape Plan, presented by The Echo and LA Music Blog, are currently available.
