After an early stint drumming and singing in Haybaby (Tiny Engines), Zach James began writing and self-producing folk records in his bedroom, donning the name The Silver Spaceman. The project evolved into a post-punk band featuring Andrew Bailey (DIIV) on lead guitar. It snarled and simmered around darker textures, miles away from its early folk roots. James looked to his darkened smile and rechristened the project Dead Tooth. They gained momentum opening for bands like Hand Habits, The Space Lady and Current Joys.
Along with Dead Tooth, Duling hosts Fling Hammer as a special guest. Jackson’s own Fling Hammer, who torched the local club scene in the early 90’s with their high-energy shows, are back again! Members include. Morris Mitchell-Guitar; Will Martin–Bass; Matt Brennan–Drums; Corey Ray–Vocals.
