Lead guitarist, Alden Sayre, attended local Dallas high school, Highland Park. Since graduating, he got his degree from the College of Charleston and joined the band, City on Down. For the first time, they will be traveling throughout Texas to play several shows before landing in Dallas. On Friday, November 16th they will be performing at 2513 Deep Ellum (formerly The Door) to entertain the masses.
Sayre considers this his "homecoming" and is "happy to show fam and friends how far I've come."
"I've never been (to Dallas)," said drummer Ian Giancursio. He's "excited to see Texan culture and see how everyone reacts to our music."
Lead singer, Greg Keys, and Giancursio, both Rochester, New York natives, started City on Down with a lot of talent and ambition. "Sharing our path and what our music represents" is important to Keys. "To escape normal life and go on an amazing journey", whether on tour or through their music, is what Keys likes most about making music.
