Dundas Ontario's The Dirty Nil have been relentlessly touring across North America in support of their debut full-length album Higher Power with Billy Talent. A dip in the schedule brought the boys back in town to perform on Night #1 of this year's Supercrawl before heading back into the States.
Being on the road so much has definitely amped up their live show, giving Luke Bentham (vocals / guitar) time to perfect his on-stage splits and David Nardi's (bass guitar / vocals) malicious bass grooves to get even deeper under the skin. They perform live like the best of them out there and it's a show that's only getting tighter and tighter. Every time I see these guys they impress and not just me. Their set had fans swarming from one end of James St. to the other in order to see them (or maybe just Luke's shirt of choice). I've got to give mad props to these dudes, they're doing it right.
Check out all my photos from their set below.
