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.
