Diet Cig starts off 2018 with their first tour as a four-piece

Characterized by high kicks and pogo jumps on stage, the self-described slop pop act Diet Cig never stops bringing the energy that most bands wait until the last song for. Even when Alex tore her ACL at Snowed In V this past November in Cleveland, she kept going on stage.

Just when we thought they were going to take a break from touring, they announced another one! This time they’ll be a four-piece band, supported by bassist Anna Cory from The Spook School and Karli Roberts-Helm, from the San Francisco rock band Plush, on keys and vocals. To top it off, they’ll be accompanied by the Seattle snack-rock group Great Grandpa and The Spook School. You can pre-order tickets here. Also be sure to check out their Tiny Desk concert below if you haven’t had the chance to see them live yet.
