Tacoma Welcomes the Digital Age

FROM EXAMINER.COM

What happens when a band loses its namesake? That’s what happened to the guys who made up the David Crowder Band. When he left to do solo work, they couldn’t really cash in on the name “The David Crowder Band without David Crowder” so they became the Digital Age. Regardless what you call them, you can see them up close and personal (within reason of course) Friday, October 11 at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Tacoma.

“The Digital Age mission picks up where we left off,” says guitarist and vocalist, Mark Waldrop on the band’s official website.  “It’s alt rock that’s compelling lyrically and musically, and we’re still obsessed with the concept record. So we’re carrying over what we did before. This is all we know, to write together and work together. It feels new, but a lot of it is a carry-over; it’s not too, too huge a departure.”

Joining the Digital Age will be Bellarive who have a passion for not only worship music for the church, but for anyone willing to listen. Band member Sean Curran says it this way, “The Creator is continuously stirring the souls of all His children toward Himself. We believe that God creates His children with specific design to reveal and bring glory to Himself in unique ways. For the six of us, that gift is creating music.”

Purchasing tickets ahead of time is the way to go. Tickets range from $12 (groups of 10 or more) to $25 (VIP including a Q&A with the bands and early seat selection). General admission is $15. If wait to buy tickets at the door, expect to pay $5 more per ticket. Tickets can be purchased through iTickets.


The concert will be held at Our Savior Lutheran Church located at 4519 112th Street E., Tacoma, WA 98446. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:00 p.m.
