Pop-punk duo returns to Columbus with debut LP in tow

After playing Columbus twice last summer (at 4th and 4th Fest in July and with Joyce Manor at Ace of Cups in August), Diet Cig's Alex Luciano (guitar, vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) are making another warm-weather road trip to our burg, ensuring an evening of spunky twee-punk that pairs well with cheap beer and/or pogo sticks. The duo's debut LP, Swear I'm Good at This, is equal parts smirk (“Barf Day”) and sincerity (the tales of high school heartbreak in “Sixteen”). Sports and Jessica Wabbit open. (Safe bet)
