Quite possibly the loudest show I’ve ever been to. That’s not a complaint, just an observation. This band has been around for a long time and they know how to play their songs. Despite a couple issues with sound, they sounded amazing. The other bands (4 of them total), ranging from punk to metal, set a great tone for the night. By the time DRI took the stage, the audience was primed and ready. Not a single person was disappointed.

This is my 3rd time catching D.R.I and every time they put on one of the most fun shows I’ve ever been to. Kurt Brecht is always handling the merch table and he’s a really cool guy to talk to. These guys get the crowd fucking going, and the community behind them are some of the most welcoming and friendly people I’ve gotten to meet.

D.R.I. is as tight and thrashing as they were in ‘87. Kurt still sounds the same after all these years. Supporting acts were excellent. Deathwish has a Motörhead vibe, but heavy and nasty as hell. Venue was tight and intimate. I was stunned how well the sound was mixed and just loud enough to make the experience everything you would want in a thrash show. Circle pits were civil and fun and as usual in the metal/thrash/punk community, everyone took care of each other and acted like family. I had no problem with my two sons jumping in the pit and having a blast. I will admit, they are both giants over 260lbs each, but nobody wants to see some asshole punch their kid in the face. None of that here, just loud fast and thrashing fun. IN THE PIT!!!!

About D.R.I.

Biography
The DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES' history begins on May 2, 1982 around 4:00pm, in the city of Houston, TX. It was on this day that the musically aggressive quartet we now know as D.R.I. made their first Dirty Rotten noise and called it a song. Back then it was Spike Cassidy (guitar), Kurt Brecht (vocals), Eric Brecht (drums), and Dennis Johnson (bass).

Description
Dirty Rotten Imbeciles (also known as D.R.I.) are a United States hardcore punk/thrashcore/crossover thrash band that formed in Houston, Texas, in 1982. The band currently comprises founding members, vocalist Kurt Brecht and guitarist Spike Cassidy, as well as bassist Harald Oimoen, and drummer Walter Ryan.

D.R.I. never gained a mainstream audience, but the integration of their hardcore punk roots with thrash metal influences was a stylistic catalyst for their contemporaries —most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, and Stormtroopers of Death— alongside whom they are considered pioneers of what would later be called "crossover thrash." This subgenre was also coined from their 1987 album Crossover.
