The group's sound has been described as "riot folk" or "thrashgrass." Song themes run the gamut from social (gang violence, terrorism, annihilation of the environment for corporate pocket-lining, the mundane and unavoidable anxieties of modern life, et al) to recreational (how the fuck did we end up in jail?).
Days N Daze embraces the D.I.Y. ethic by recording, packaging and promoting its music independently.
DnD is best known for is its live shows, which are energetic to the point of audience members stripping their clothes off in ecstatic, music-induced jubilation (or, too much PBR). The band has performed throughout the United States and Canada in venues ranging from house shows to festivals. DnD independently booked and promoted a full U.S tour with New Zealand’s Night Gaunts after their split release in 2015. They also had the privilege to tour with Leftover Crack and featured on LOC’s newest album “Constructs of the State”. On the road, DnD has played the D.I.Y. staple Mountain Blood Fest, at Skatopia's Bowl Bash and has played multiple sold out shows across the states including New York City and Los Angeles. At home, it performs routinely at well-regarded spaces such as Walter's and Warehouse Live. The band was honored to be awarded Best Punk Act in 2015 by The Houston Press.
Lead singer Libby Lux and upright bass player Scott Michaud infrequently started playing music together on the streets of Portland, Oregon over six years ago. They would meet up without rehearsal nor a plan a few times a year with other various street musicians to sing and yell at passer byers. Years before that, on their separate journeys, they traveled, hitch-hiked, and howled at the moon across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. In hobo fashion, they earned what they’d eat and roofs over their heads by the papers and coins tossed into their hat.
Through their years of wandering, they were able to pick up a rich catalog of songs passed through the traveling / busking community. In 2012, their mutual best friend and lead singer of folk-punk band Profane Sass, passed away when he fell off a train in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In a way the Bridge City Sinners are a homage to keep his spirit alive and continue passing along the music they all sang together on the streets, hidden in trains, and in living rooms across the continent. They formed the Bridge City Sinners in the Winter of 2016.
They now have jobs; they now have stable living quarters. Toxic Toast Records will be pressing their already released album in early 2018 on Vinyl and Cassette Tape.
