Celluloid Bachelor #51: D. Rider "Touchy"

Let me guess - right now you are thinking ... WTF?

Yeah. That's what I thought, too.

The folks in D. Rider are up to something, and whatever it is, it's pretty weird.

But weird in a cool way, which is exactly what one would expect given the role frontman Todd Rittmann has played as founder of seminal band U.S. Maple and the supergroup Singer.

Those of you who like their rock a touch creepy and threatening, with a hint of sonicized sexual tension (or would that be sexualized sonic tension?), you are definitely gonna want to hit the band's show at Now That's Class on Tuesday night. The show is the first stop on the band's first serious trip out of their Chicago hometown, so it'll be particularly special.
