Before describing what they are, let’s make a list of what they are not. They don’t wear sunglasses on stage or invent fake nicknames for each member. Jed Olsen does not use his guitar to “space jam.” Seth Gronli does not play ten-minute drum solos. Ryan Nielson does not “thumb slap” his bass strings. They don’t waste time bantering with the audience or each other. They don’t incorporate banjos, fiddles, didgeridoo, loop pedals, stage painters or go-go dancers. What the DTs have become is one of Duluth’s definitive punk bands: unpretentious and entertaining as hell.
