At the end of December 2020, Dance Gavin Dance blew anyone (and everyone!) out of the live streaming arena. They only went and got Sacramento’s Tower Bridge shutdown (aka the US equivalent of the iconic bridge in London of the same name) so they could throw down Tree City Sessions 2 live stream and album – the follow up to 2016’s Tree City Sessions live album.
Tree City Sessions 2 delivers over an hour of musical twists and turns coupled with high-energy, seamless interludes and an all-around phenomenal display of music and sound. It’s almost a shame it ends and when it does, you’ll be screaming “again, again” like the Teletubbies by the time last track, Nothing Shameful, gives you one last eargasm. It’s the first time the band has ever performed it and hopefully not the last.
Whilst the release will score mega points with the hardcore DGD contingent, Tree City Sessions 2 would also serve as an excellent intro and starting point for those less familiar with the band’s material. Spanning no less than nine (!) of the bands’ albums plus the added live element, this truly showcases the band at their best.
