[EMO FOLK] Dude hits paydirt in the pre-Internet emo era with Waxwing. They break up, and Dude soldiers on with an acoustic guitar and a penchant for wispy, pastoral compositions. Seattle’s Rocky Votolato is considered a demigod in certain PacNW circles, but it’s easier to digest the lilting melodies of his decade-old classic Suicide Medicine under the assumption that he’s a less-annoying Chris Carrabba with some impressive family ties. Younger bro and Blood Brothers guitarist Cody will be in tow, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for an unplugged version of “Ambulance vs. Ambulance” to sneak its way in to the setlist.
