ivy room presents THURSDAY AUGUST 22ND DEAD BARS WESTERN ADDICTION M.U.T.T. & SPECIAL GUESTS Doors 7:30pm / Show 8:00pm $15* Advance / $18 Day of Show — IVY ROOM 860 San Pablo Ave, Albany • 21+ DEAD BARS There’s something deeply comforting about being a regular at a dive bar. If you consistently patronize a warm, welcoming, low-lit dive bar, whether it’s in your neighborhood or not, you can build yourself a community amongst the other wayward patrons, and the bartenders who thanklessly keep everyone’s glasses filled. And even when you find yourself drinking alone in a dead bar, you still have a place to sit quietly and ruminate on the turn of the world around you. Sure, you might be quick to say it’s not the healthiest option to have your social life revolve around alcohol, but the fact is, in an era when the alternative is often isolation and endless scrolling, a good dive bar might just save your life. “I always liked this idea of being a regular, so I knew years ago that I wanted that to be the title of our new album,” says John Maiello, vocalist of Seattle pop-punk quartet Dead Bars. “Regulars is essentially an album that’s about loneliness and community, both co-existing equally. It's about looking normal to everyone else, but feeling out of place. It's about me, it's about us, and it's about the fans. It's about being in Dead Bars.” The album, which was produced by Jack Endino (yes, the same Jack Endino who recorded Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, and many others in the early '90s) encapsulates this beautifully in the form of emotional singalong anthems -- perfect for screaming along after you've had a beer, or five.
