It’s not that often that we here at PDX Magazine cover bands or artists that aren’t, shall I say, home grown. Dead Sara, however, is an exception. This rock band from Los Angeles has proven to be a crowd pleasing spectacle of raw energy, emotion, and soul that you’ll not want to miss. With the gritty and passionate vocals of Emily Armstrong mixed with the aggressively solid hitting rock sound of Siouxsie Medly, this high-octane rock n’ roll duo will electrify you where you stand. During their 2013 U.S. tour with Muse, Chicago Music Monthly stated, “Dead Sara is an example of everything that is right with rock and roll. Their live show is one that will not be forgotten for hundreds of Muse fans seeing them for the first time.”
Having just launched their first tour in support of their sophomore album, “The Airport Sessions,” Dead Sara is set to take the country by storm. As Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) declared, “Dead Sara should be the next biggest rock band in the world.”
And we think you should come out see why for yourself.
