102.9 The HOG presents
Dream Machine Tour
Des Rocs
Jigsaw Youth

Thursday, April 25, 2024 at 8pm

 Des Rocs is a fearsome force of nature, a self-invented rock ‘n’ roll star for a new age and a generation seeking direction, a  streetwalking cheetah with a heart full of napalm on a mission to search and destroy our social media-addled brains. The artist  otherwise known as Danny Rocco is an original... sui generis, taking elements of the past and forging a fresh destiny for  high-energy guitar, bass and drums electric music.

 Dream Machine, his new album, and first for legendary rock indie Sumerian Records, is Des Rocs’ vehicle to take us along to  that place... where life is heightened, and rock ‘n’ roll once more rules the zeitgeist. He’s not going to be a best-kept secret for  long. His brand of self-titled “bedroom arena-rock”– which captures a blend of DIY intimacy and large-scale vision– is ready to  infect the masses, to find the artistic tightrope within that populist thrust. Every performance is “on the edge of life and death”  for Des Rocs, who works without a safety net in a “Never Ending Moment.” He was born to do this.

Boasting the hip swivel of vintage Elvis Presley and the playful sneer of Johnny Thunders, this proud New Yorker found his true  calling after dark on the streets of New York City’s downtown club scene and around the country, playing with the same  bug-eyed intensity to the back row, whether in front of 90 people or 90,000, opening for the Rolling Stones at Philadelphia’s  Lincoln Financial Field (which he did in 2019 right before Covid). Des Rocs has also opened for Muse in arenas across Europe.  “Making music for us is existential,” says Des, a proud heir of the New York City rock tradition which spans the Velvet  Underground, Kiss, the Ramones, Sonic Youth and the Strokes. “We spend our whole life just making it possible to play music  without a real day job. We’re just so happy to be on-stage.”
