Rock 'n' roll ain't no luxury item. It's essential. It's the blood in our veins and the fire in our hearts. And nobody does it better than Danko Jones. Formed in Toronto in 1996, this six-legged riff 'n' refrain machine have spent the last two decades delivering huge, jolting doses of stripped back 'n' strutting hard rock with the relentlessness of men possessed. Led by Danko himself, the closest thing the modern world has to a credible king of rock'n'roll, and now deftly supported by suave bass maestro John Calabrese and loose-limbed drum god Rich Knox, this pumped-up Canadian power trio grabbed the world's attention with a flurry of early EPs, before exploding fully into action with 2002's full-length debut Born A Lion. Ruthlessly devoted to the road and masters of the lost art of rocking the living shit out of audiences from Utah to Ulan Bator, Danko Jones have grown in strength with every new album and breathless round-the-world trek. While touring with everyone from Volbeat to Guns N' Roses, Danko and his comrades have earned a formidable reputation as one of the few modern hard rock bands that truly unite the tribes, bringing punk rockers and metal purists together through sheer force of personality and amp-wrecking oomph. From classic albums like 2003's flawless We Sweat Blood and its widely acclaimed 2006 follow-up Sleep Is The Enemy (which featured a guest appearance from ex-Kyuss legend John Garcia) to recent triumphs Fire Music (2015) and Wild Cat (2017), Danko Jones have re-written the hard rock rulebook, bringing back all the fun, ferocity and life- affirming power that only the all-time greats can harness. After Party at The Underworld from 11pm to 3am. See The Underworld listings for tickets.
