DANA

Sat   Mar   26   2022 - 12:00 AM Pilot Light

The increasingly inventive Ohio punk rock outfit DANA was formed in 2016, in an effort singer Madeline Jackson describes as “purely survival driven.”  Their 2019 album Glowing Auras and Black Money (produced and engineered by guitarist Chris Lute) earned praise as a “grungy, punky, messy affair, a trashy and tumultuous fight between genres” (Music Tap) and as a “noisy, skronking good time” (MRR).

DANA carries on the tradition of bands like The Stooges, Brainiac, and DEVO, “with that distinctive weirdo DNA common in Midwest goons, freaks, screwballs and artsy fartsies.” Ever earnest, always fun, chaotic and cathartic—the DANA live show is something to behold. DANA is Madeline Jackson (theremin, vocals), Chris Lute (guitar, vocals, synth), Brian Baker (drums), and Dan Matos (bass).
