Tonight: Dredg at the Marquis
There isn't much of a way to approach Dredg (who play the Marquis Theater tonight with the Trophy Fire, Balance and Composure and the Dear Hunter) without talking about the band's legacy. Retaining its original lineup since its 1993 formation, the California outfit has weathered stylistic storms with its own blend of art rock and conceptual work for almost two decades.
Over the years, the band has played Coachella and shared bills with Chevelle, the Blood Brothers and Glassjaw. On tour now in support of its fifth studio album, the just-released Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy, Dredg has kept die-hard fans of its progressive alternative style content while continuing to attract a whole new generation of listeners. This show is all-ages, and tickets are $15-$17. Doors open at 7 p.m., and bands start at 8.
