Preview. Diet Cig play The Portland


One of our most anticipated gigs this month is Diet Cig at The Portland on Monday 23rd, tickets here.

Diet Cig is the New York boy-girl duo of Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums). Their debut album released earlier this year was a triumph of raucous pop-punk that was clever, funny, confrontational and ever so slightly twee.

Debut album ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ accumulates Diet Cig’s tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.
