Sprain w/ St. Francis (FKA Dearly Departure), DRAAG, Dayton Swim Club

Ages 21+ / Doors Open 8pm

$10 Advance, $12 Day of Show


Sprain is the experimental music project of Los Angeles based musicians Alexander Kent, April Gerloff, Sylvie Simmons, and Clint Dodoson. Despite humble beginnings as an ultra-quiet, minimal slowcore band, the band is presently known for their challenging vein of avant-punk which emphasizes harsh, dissonant, but stubbornly melodic instrumentals and demanding song lengths. The band has explored many avenues of musical abstraction, having undergone many lineup changes and reinventions, cementing spontaneity and variety into their shape shifting identity. As brutal as they are beautiful, Sprain has carved into the world of underground rock a particularly throbbing niche.

St. Francis
