ALTERNATIVE ROCK BAND DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL TO HEADLINE WINTER DEW TOUR’S MUSIC STAGE AT WENDY’S INVITATIONAL, JAN. 15
Free Concert To Take Place on Ogden’s Historic 25th Street
Dashboard Confessional will headline the Winter Dew Tour’s Music Series presented by Verizon Wireless on Friday, January 15. The concert, also featuring local opening act Codi Jordan, will be held in the 200 block of Ogden’s Historic 25th Street (Grant Ave.) as a part of the second stop of the 2009-10 season, the Wendy’s Invitational, taking place at Snowbasin. The Friday night concert is free to the public and will begin at 7pm.
Originally the side project of lead singer Chris Carrabba, Dashboard Confessional recorded its first album Swiss Army Romance, releasing it in 2000 while Carrabba was still the front man of Further Seems Forever. However, it was the band’s sophomore album, The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most and its single “Screaming Infidelities,” that brought Dashboard Confessional to the forefront. The music video for “Screaming Infidelities” garnered the group multiple accolades, including the MTV2 award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2002. More successes followed with A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar and Dusk and Summer, both of which peaked at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard charts, with the song “Vindicated” being featured in the end credits of Spider-Man 2.
The band’s sixth album, Alter the Ending, was released on November 10, with the first single, “Belle of the Boulevard.”
Dashboard Confessional, along with opener Codi Jordan – a rock-driven, local Utah group with elements of reggae, folk and hip hop – will perform Friday night, January 15 on the 200 block of Ogden’s Historic 25th Street in Ogden. Friday night’s concert will begin at 7pm with gates opening one hour prior to the start of the show. The entire show will be free to the public.
