Die Die My Darling Set Lists & Thank Yous...



Die Die My Darling just played our third show in three years with our third lineup. It was a blast! Thanks to all of our friends who came out -- Nils (Happy B-Day), J.D. (DownZig's bro), Nicole Schieppati, KellDogg, Candy S. and get ready for some sick name drops:

Dave & Ben from Throwdown, Marta, Leppke & Danough from Bleeding Through, Joel "The Falcon," Scraggs and Dave from The Dear & Departed, Keith Barney & Trevor Dark Baby from Eighteen Visions, Sean Durham & Erik Collins from Sinai Beach, Davey Havok from AFI, it ruled.

Yep, we have sweet friends.

Special thanks to Dave Peters for the sick guest vox on "Skulls." If you haven't heard Throwdown's cover of "London Dungeon" you should check out their MySpace page and rock it.
