A few updates

We had a few key updates in the world of Dirt.

First and foremost, moving forward, Dirt will return to being a four-piece band featuring John on vocals, Dan on drums, Jason on bass and Matt handling all guitar duties. We felt it was best to streamline the approach. With that, we decided to part ways with Ronny Turner, who played with us six times this summer. Ronny is a fine guitarist and we're sure he'll find a new project very soon that's more suited to his style. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Second, this Saturday's scheduled show at Johnny Malloys Medina was rescheduled at the venue's request for Saturday, Nov. 25. Halfway Home will open for us there like they originally were. Conflicts from the Browns' preseason game and the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight necessitated this change. Thank you to the management at Johnny Malloys for working with us and we believe -- especially since Medina is a new market for us -- that this move was for the best.

Just like that, our busy August came to a halt. We now have 3 weeks until our next show, and that one should be huge -- Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Pour House in Amherst! We've been salivating over playing there all year long, and we can't wait to blow the roof off the place!

We also scheduled two shows at two of our favorite places -- Mutt & Jeff's in Lorain and the Sly Fox in North Olmsted. The Mutt's show will be Saturday, Nov. 4 -- we're calling it Lorain's Headbanger's Ball with us and our friends in Tail Gunner. The Sly Fox show is Saturday, Dec. 16 -- a few days before Dan's 44th birthday, so come out and celebrate the occasion!

We may book something else in early December, but as of now, it looks like our 2017 has been filled. It's been a great year for the band, and we're excited to ride this wave all the way up!

2018 should be an even better year. With two shows already scheduled for the Akron Empire early in the year and another big show (that we can't reveal yet) slated for the first weekend of January, we've already gotten a head start on big things. With several bars, such as Sly Fox, Mutt's, Shakers Tavern, Laporte Inn and the Empire, keeping us in their rotation of bands already, and others -- like Iggys Bar, Whiskey Warehouse and the Lorain Palace's 6th St. Experience -- who have expressed an interest in bringing us back again, there should no shortage of shows next year, either. Stay tuned for more!

Until next time, you guys are awesome ... we are Dirt! We are from Lorain County and we play heavy f**kin metal! \m/
