The D.C. alt-metal band Dog Fashion Disco doesn't play into classy decor or music mainstream. Their vigor cites the same intensity as Clutch, Tool, and Nothingface, taking shape for new millennium punk revival. The band, which is composed of frontman Todd D. Smith, guitarist Greg Combs, keyboardist Jeff Seigel, bassist Steve Mears, and drummer John Ensminger, has toured with the likes of Methods of Mayhem, POD, and Stone Temple Pilots. In early 2001, the band marked their debut with Anarchists of Good Taste on Spitfire Records. Committed to a Bright Future followed two years later, their final album for Spitfire. A deal with Artemis Records surfaced in November 2004 while the band prepared for their first live effort. Recorded at Fletcher's in Baltimore, MD, The City Is Alive Tonight...Live In Baltimore was released in January 2005. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
