Show Preview: DMBQ - March 7 @ Sunset Tavern
by Ashley Graham

Rising from the ashes of the horrible car accident that took the life of their drummer, China, Chinese psyche rockers DMBQ return to the US, where the fateful accident occurred amidst the frenzy of their last tour, and play Seattle’s Sunset Tavern on March 7. In a message posted to the band’s official website,, the members of the current line-up share their upset over the loss of China, but their need to continue to pursue the dream she helped to begin:

“We thought what we should do after this, and decided we should keep strong. We think China hopes DMBQ keeps rockin' even if she can not play with us. So we decided we never stop DMBQ. We talked what we should do first, and we decided we should come over to the US again as soon as we can.”

And so they return, to the Sunset, the venue they were scheduled to play those months ago in November just days after the accident, and where a benefit show for China ended up occurring instead. It’s no doubt been a long road for DMBQ the past few months, and their return to the states should be something to see. The full tour runs through March.
