Dale Earnhardt JR JR @ 9:30 Club on 11/6

Dani Rosen

JR JR, also known as Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., is an indie-pop band from Detroit, Michigan, consisting of Daniel Zott and Joshua Epstein. They met each other while playing in other Detroit music projects eventually branching off and creating their own sound in 2009.

PSA: Epstein and Zott have no ties to popular NASCAR circuit driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. or anyone in the family. “The idea being that if one can accept a band being named Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., then you‰’ve already opened yourself up to listening to anything that band can come up with. You‰’ve already decided to leave expectations behind‰” according to Epstein.

Opening is Brothertiger- the staple of synth pop since 2009. He‰’s released two full-length albums and two EPs with one more full album on the horizon.

This show is RIYL: great beats, excellent lyrics and an overall great time.

Doors open at 6pm and tickets are $17 at the door or online.
