2015's Party Adjacent is the second solo studio album from Dan Andriano, renowned bassist and vocalist of Alkaline Trio fame. Party Adjacent was produced by former Bomb the Music Industry mastermind, Jeff Rosenstock, and features backing by Kevin Higuchi of The Jeff Rosenstock Band, guitarist Mike Huguenor of Hard Girls and Jeff playing bass and keyboards. Vibes ranging from Thin Lizzy to Billy Bragg, the Clash and even Brand New all pop up here, and the result is one of those rare collections that's obviously an artist's singular vision that's been augmented by the right collaborative team.
The Emergency Room project started when Dan found himself living in Florida and experimenting with the idea of doing a stripped down record that would exist completely separate from his work in Alkaline Trio. That album, Hurricane Season came out quietly on Asian Man Records in 2011, and Dan did a bit of touring on it, troubadour style, with just an acoustic guitar, notably on the US and European legs of The Revival Tour. Party Adjacent adds a new chapter to the Emergency Room story, with a full band, and a batch of songs that stand as some of Dan's finest to date!
