Gang of Youths at The Basement in Nashville on March 19, 2018

(Opening act: The Philistines Jr.)



Persevere (Dave solo)

Comments: Before the show, the band announces on social media that someone has broken into their touring van and stolen laptops. The posts say “One broken guitar, van broken into and all our laptops gone, tornado warnings but we’re here Nashville.” The “broken guitar” bit is a reference to Delta Airlines allegedly damaging Dave’s guitar while the band was in transit to America. The band also posts on Snapchat about having to use the free wifi at a nearby Panera Bread restaurant to download the samples and loops that they use during shows. Dave would later tell Chicago’s WGN radio that the stolen laptops also had some early work for Gang of Youths’ next album.
