Local/Live: December 13 — Dramatic Lovers

December 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm



Dramatic Lovers take their name from the Italian anarchists that once upon time, held weekly meetings at the Cactus Club in Bay View, Wisconsin. Like those political crusaders of yesteryear, Dramatic Lovers (the band), have spent the past 20 years or so in various musical incarnations drinking, dreaming and playing shows together at The Cactus Club.

Friends for eternity and bandmates in cycles, Dramatic Lovers began less than a year ago after single show reunion as Decibully. Inspired once again, the group began to write new material and rounded out the line-up with the rhythm section from Maritime taking on more melodic roles. The new material holds roots in the time-tested shadows of Decibully and The Promise Ring/Maritime, but also looks backwards to the sounds of their youth. 80s and 90s shoegaze, emo & Brit-pop influence a maturing songwriting style that comes from decades of playing music together.
