NoClubs Presents:The Dirty Knobs w/Mike CampbellTuesdaySept 9thThe Orpheum7PM doors$30 adv$45 Balcony$32 Day of ShowAll Ages - under 18 must be accompanied by parent or legal guardianWhile 2020’s Wreckless Abandon is their first official release and occasion to tour, TheDirty Knobs first came together 15 years ago after Mike Campbell met guitarist JasonSinay at a session and liked the way their guitars sounded together. After adding theacclaimed rhythm section of bassist Lance Morrison (Don Henley) and drummer MattLaug (Slash, Alanis Morrisette), The Dirty Knobs became an outlet for Campbell to workon some of the other songs he was writing between Tom Petty and The Heartbreakersrecords and touring.They got together when schedules permitted, playing music without an agenda,expectations or deadlines, without worrying about outcome or hits, pushing boundariesof taste, imagination, and genres and creating some of the most brutally confident yetpsychically dangerous rock and roll since sonic-renegade juggernauts the Yardbirds firstsauntered onto a London stage and ripped into “For Your Love.”As the years went on the Knobs played out here and there, almost incognito, in littleclubs in Southern California. Looking mysterious and a little troubled in their mirrorshades, neck scarfs, black shirts and vests, they were propelled out of rock’s murky past,but born full-blown.In a way, they were doing their own version of the Beatles’ formative, tighten-upHamburg years: performing oddball covers but mostly original songs about bad women,complicated relationships and messy confrontations.Finally, after all those years together, it became clear they should take what they did tothe next level. Campbell’s long-time compatriot, friend and bandmate, Tom Petty, hadpassed away, and after the numbing grief abated some, the guitarist knew the only wayto heal some of the pain was to throw himself wholeheartedly back into his music.“Losing Tom was earth-shattering for me. It was a total shock.” says Campbell. “It hadfelt like we would be playing together forever. For a while it was hard to imagine playingin my own band again, let alone one where I’m the frontman. Tom was always mybeacon. But everything I’ve been doing since Tom passed
