We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: If you ever hear anyone say anything along the lines of, “No good bands ever tour through Sacramento,” then please slap them upside the head and point them toward some of our area’s many amazing venues like, for example, Ace of Spades, who consistently brings national and international bands to town. Case in point: On Tuesday, July 26, one of the more buzzed about bands on the touring scene as of late, London-based post-punk rockers Savages, will hit Ace for a show that regional music aficionados are sure to be talking about for months (maybe even years) to come. “Savages’ intention is to create a sound, indestructible, musically solid, written for the stage and designed with enough nuances to provide a wide range of emotions,” states the manifesto on the band’s website, We’re just going to let it roll, because this shit is gold. “Savages are a self-affirming voice to help experience our girlfriends differently, our husbands, our jobs, our erotic life and the place music occupies into our lives. Savages’ songs aim to remind us that human beings haven’t evolved so much, that music can still be straight to the point, efficient and exciting.” Get your $25 advance tickets before they sell out, available now at or at Dimple Records locations. Opening will be A Dead Forest Index, all the way from Auckland, New Zealand. The show is all ages and kicks off at 7 p.m. Ace is located at 1417 R Street in downtown Sacramento.
