FRIDAY, JULY 22ND

RICHARD'S ON RICHARDS

DOORS 7:00 pm SHOW 7:30 pm

**EARLY SHOW**

Leitmotif, Dredg's 1998 debut, was such an underground sensation it sold out of every independent pressing until Interscope released it three years later. Combining conceptual art-rock with experimental instrumentation and tuneful songs, the disc caught fire with fans of Tool, Sparta and the Mars Volta.

The Bay Area band's 2002 follow-up, El Cielo, brought further comparisons to Radiohead and even U2 for its epic songs and instrumental grandeur as the group settled into a sound uniquely its own and indescribably beautiful. Fueled by the wondrous riff-rock and yearning melody of its Internet-available single "Bug Eyes," Dredg's third and latest album Catch Without Arms is generating an even greater amount of buzz and hype than its first two records combined.

An accompanying North American tour promises to lift Dredg to greater prominence as more and more people catch on to one of the most exciting, energetic and uplifting bands to come out of the West Coast in the last five years. (As a bonus, fans can buy tickets for a draw at the end of each show wherein the winner receives a small painting by the band.)

Don't miss Dredg live at Richard's on Richards on Friday, July 22nd with special guests.

Dredg

Dear mom, The tour is going well. We have met a lot of new friends. Ricky said he doesn't hate me anymore! We are in Minneapolis now and it is really cold. Apparently, our van could not deal as it is dead and sitting in our hotel parking lot at the moment. We did get to see a deer get hit by a car yesterday though. WOW!! There are 6 more show... more info
