Tonight at Revolution! Alkaline Trio and Cursive Both Love Dungeons & Dragons

In anticipation for tonight's Alkaline Trio show at Revolution, I spoke to drummer Derek Grant about a variety of topics. We discussed the seminal aggro punks' blistering "return to form" record, This Addiction (the title track's video is above), the band's Heart & Skull imprint, and their current pals on the road, Cursive.

How has the tour with Cursive gone?

Those guys are great. Our bands have been around for a

long time, but

we'd never really crossed paths. It's cool to be able to tour with them

and hang out. They like to play Dungeons & Dragons, and they come

to me and ask questions about how to play. They're kind of new to it, I

guess. I used to play Dungeons & Dragons when I was younger.

There'll be some more interesting anecdotes by the end of the tour.

More interesting? Picturing Tim Kasher rolling a 20-sided die is tough to beat.

Alkaline Trio, with Cursive. 6:30 p.m. March 23, at Revolution, 200 W.
