Circle pits, power slides, and theater games generally aren’t associated with acoustic music. Then again, Destroy Nate Allen aren’t your average folkies. Destroy Nate Allen started as the solo/quiet acoustic musings of Nate Allen and has evolved and twisted into a two piece rock n’ roll attack, sharply focused on showing people a good time.
Combining Tessa’s impulsive theatrical urges with Nate’s love for early 90′s pop punk, DNA play folk music like punk rock – complete with all the blood, sweat and broken strings of a great basement show. Their live show shines with fun punk rock urgency. Together Nate and Tessa (who are married) sing brutally honest true stories (and lots of love songs) that are built around 3 chord hooks so sticky sweet they’ll be stuck in your head for days.
Since 2006, DNA has self released 7 full length albums and spent the majority of their available time on the road, lighting up one room at a time with a contagious joy and energy that is rarely seen.
