COMING TO NYC: DREDG on 10/1 with Salman Rushdie

DREDG--Gavin Hayes (vocals, guitar), Drew Roulette (bass, Moog, Speak & Spell, samples), Mark Engles (guitar) and Dino Campanella (drums, keyboards)--will be performing at a special fundraising event with Salman Rushdie on Thursday, October 1 at 7:30pm at Housing Works Bookstore Café (126 Crosby Street). Information can be found at

The band's fourth album, THE PARIAH, THE PARROT, THE DELUSION which came out June 9 on their Ohlone Recordings through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group, was inspired in part by Salman Rushdie’s essay “Imagine There's No Heaven: A Letter to the 6 Billionth Citizen” and is packaged and constructed like a letter, its songs and instrumental interludes connected by eerie, evocative Wurlitzer piano-and-voice segments. Diverse and textured, these intentional imperfections allow some of Dredg’s mellowest recorded moments to mingle with some of their harshest. Salman Rushdie will be reading the essay at the event.
