What started as two co-workers exchanging their rough demo recordings has turned into not only a long-term relationship but one of the best song writing duos to emerge from Boston in some time. Drug Rug is the love child of Tommy Allen and Sarah Cronin and along with friends, including Julian Cassanetti and Carter Tanton, they are creating a vibrant brand of country tinged rock that is as accessible as it is artistic.
Fresh off a 13-date tour with Dr.Dog, Drug Rug has come home to finish the tour at the legendary Paradise Rock Club. Joining them will be heralded local trio Helms and the ruckus rock stomp of Viva Viva. Three great local bands in the city’s most historic rock and roll venue. Do not miss this show!
Q&A w/ Tommy Allen of Drug Rug
Q: The show on friday will be the final show of a 14-date tour through the South and back home to Boston. How was the tour? and how does it feel to be coming back home to headline at The Paradise?
A: If Drug rug was a burger Julian Cassanetti and Carter Tanton would be the buns.
Q: If you could play a show in Boston with 3 other local bands who would they be and at what Boston venue would you play?
A: Well I guess we would start with Helms and Viva Viva at The Paradise tonight. Hope you all can make it.
