Dilly Dally, Darlene Shrugg, Frigs @ The Silver Dollar 4/28/2017

This weekend marked the last few nights of shows at The Silver Dollar. As of today, (May 1st) it will no longer be open for a while. What happens to it when the condos around it are built is still a mystery. I kicked off my weekend with Dilly Dally‘s final show there.

Opening the night was FRIGS with ferocious frontwoman Bria Salmena growling her way through the set. The emotional “Chest” was the show stealer.

The second act of the night was a supergroup called Darlene Shrugg made up of Meg Remy from U.S. Girls, members of Ice Cream, fabulous drummer Simone TB and Slim Twig. Together they played glam rock, with most of the members taking turns on the vocals.

The female-friendly night ended with the local powerhouse that is Dilly Dally. Katie Monks asked if anybody had previously seen them at the Dollar and in fact we had in their much earlier days. It’s amazing how much this band has grown in 3 years, and how much we need an incubator for great local music like The Silver Dollar.
