FRIDAY: Dignitaries CD release show

Garage rock isn't rocket science, but "Rocket Science" is most certainly garage rock.

The Dignitaries are a garage band. This aesthetic is one they've honed to a fine craft. On the band's debut LP, Rocket Science, 15 songs blaze by in a fuzzy haze of two-minute bursts. Like the album's name might suggest, these songs are all fire and momentum - spent after a brief window, with the sulfury smell of damage left in their wake.

Having only been around for about two years, the Dignitaries have nevertheless carved a groove for themselves in the local music scene, thanks, largely, to their energetic live shows.

"We put on a good show," says lead singer Reylan Fernandez. "With a lot of people, you can have great songs, you can have great hooks and you can have the right equipment, but if you don't put on a good show at the local level, no one's going to remember you. Our little tambourines have become the little keepsake that everybody remembers us by, which helps."
