This might not help much, as tickets are already hard (if not impossible) to come by, but Fredericksburg All Ages has a major concert coming up August 11: the Dismemberment Plan at Eyeclopes Studio.
For the uninitiated, Dismemberment Plan is an influential indie-rock band from Washington, D.C., but their roots run directly to Fredericksburg and what was then Mary Washington College. They had their greatest impact on music and culture (so far, anyway) in the ’90s. Their 1999 album “Emergency & I” is probably their critical high-water mark, routinely named one of the top albums of the decade. Critical success aside, it is an album built with sounds and themes that continue to influence rock music today.
If you want tickets to the show, get in line and cross your fingers. A small number of tickets were released this morning and are already gone, but more tickets are scheduled to be available here tomorrow at 10 a.m. Also, keep an eye on fredericksburgallages.com and the FAA Facebook page.
