Dollar Store Riot makes a humble but determined effort to create a sound blending melody with gigantic walls of noise and distortion that has been described as reminiscent of Hüsker Dü, Dinosaur Jr., U2 and My Bloody Valentine with a touch of the Clash thrown in. 

February 23, 2014 – Dollar Store Riot at Crossroads in Garwood, NJ

The last one was such a success we just had to do it again! This show is open to people of all ages. Remember…that doesn’t mean a show featuring high school acts. Simply, high school & underage people are invited to join in on the fun! This time around our matinee will focus on Rock PERIOD! There are no cover bands…although some of these acts may throw in a cover or two in their set. These are local bands that write & perform original tunes! Headlining the festivities is Don Giovanni Records recording artist Black Wine who’ve been busy recording a new album! They will be unveiling some of those new songs at this show! Eastern Anchors will follow featuring half a set of new material! This will be the second “official” show for Terrible Terrible! We urge people to contact Crossroads to reserve a table if you plan on eating. There will also be plenty of standing room in front of the stage! So here’s the run down-

Doors open @ 1pm with Dutch Boys kicking it off @ 2pm

78 North Ave, Garwood, New Jersey 07027

Only $8…that’s only 1$ a band!
All door $ goes to the bands!

Support your local music!
