Dirty Dead : “Elevate the 828” Mini-Tour #1

November 11, 2021 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dirty Dead

Dirty Dead return to One World West in West Asheville to kick-off their 4 day “Elevate the 828 Mini-Ter”!

Asheville NC’s DIRTY DEAD are in their fifth year and are still: literally on fire!
With grungy, modern interpretations of the classic Grateful Dead/JGB catalog, DIRTY DEAD are calling the music higher and further than in a long time! With an eclectic mix of players from various styles of music — as the Grateful Dead were –something new, fresh and exciting is happening. Psychedelia, reggae, funk and hip-hop in a Grateful Dead song? OK, got to see this!
The sound grew out of founder PAUL DECIRCE’s feeling the urge for the Dead sound to evolve further — further than trying to imitate or even emulate the great bands accomplishments. GRATEFUL DEAD played at the foot of the pyramids and JERRY GARCIA rocked for thirty years … no need to try and copy that.
Instead, the band simply lead their individual styles to a mash up…and the result quite simply is … DIRTY!
FUN interpretations are the result and since their first gig in September of ’16, DD fans have been supporting and pushing this unique sound.
DIRTY DEAD was formed and is the non de plume of PAUL DRUM DECIRCE, a well known flautist/guitarist/drummer in the WNC music scene. Originally from Syracuse NY, Paul has been called “the pied piper of Asheville” (Mountain Xpress), and was the founding member of PEACE JONES.
