“The Dining Dead is an indie-alternative band hailing from the isolated hillsides of Santa Clarita, CA. …This relatively young band will for many recall the over-driven, cautiously-optimistic tones of the 1990s. It’s almost if Emily Haines and Stephen Malkmus decided to start a band with Issac Brock playing guitar and writing all the songs. Despite their retro-active melodies, one of the main draws of The Dining Dead is that their songs are surprisingly relatable to a younger crowd, and they effectively do this without sacrificing quality songwriting. Plus, they urge you to dance during their shows, so that can never be a bad thing…” -Carlo Chavez
