Gatsbys American Dream

There are plenty of people who would probably thank Seattle indie-punk outfit Gatsbys American Dream for splitting up back in 2006. That break led to the formation of the beloved local acts Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground and Wild Orchid Children—though that's far from a complete list, and the unofficial side-project count floats around a dozen. But GAD’s legions of die-hard fans couldn’t be happier that the hiatus only lasted a few years, especially considering that their recently released song “Modern Man” indicates the new music will be just as melodic, danceable, and complex as it was at the band’s peak. Also on the bill is Northwest punk-rawk trio MxPx, who’ll be joined by original drummer Yuri Ruley to play 1996 album Life In General in its entirety—the record of both “Chick Magnet” fame and hometown PSA “Move to Bremerton.” With Man Without Wax.
