Meet The Dig

The Dig offers up all kinds of catchy pop goodness. Ya'll know I'm a fan of catchy goodness and so are you, right? Well, between playing all over the city, being on the road right now with The Editors and The Antlers and an upcoming tour with Portugal. The Man and Port O'Brien, you've probably gotten word of these guys already. If you by chance haven't heard them, check out "You're Already Gone" below. They will be releasing their full-length debut, Electric Toys, later this year.

The kinda sorta official list of reasons to check out The Dig ...
•Their work ethic is insane. For years they've been playing all over NYC regularly and hitting the streets with an endless stream of posters, flyers and free music (Fact: I had their robot postcard displayed in my kitchen for a year before I ever met them.)

• The Dig's forthcoming debut full-length Electric Toys was produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Antony & the Johnsons, The Ramones, Bishop Allen)

• The Dig have played/toured with The Walkmen, White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic, Mission of Burma, The Soft Pack...

• Their the music is moody+poppy+catchy+sexy+dark+anthemic+dreamy
New Yorkers, The Dig will be taking the stage here! They'll be at Terminal 5 on February 19 with The Editors and The Antlers. A month later, they'll be at Highline Ballroom with Portugal. The Man and Port O'Brien on March 19.
