Nate AllenThe Pac-Away Dots exist in the cathartic space between plaintive indie rock, soul-bearing folk, blunt southern blues & jagged rock n’ roll. Their punk informed songs are vintage heart-on-the-sleeve Nate Allen (of Destroy Nate Allen). His merry band of Pac-Away Dots help drive things home with an energetic and electric flair.

Elements of blues, punk and folk line the foundation of this rock and roll record. Written by a workaholic during the throes of unemployment, Take Out The Trash covers the identity struggle between projecting a good image and actually being a kind person. The serious-but-hopeful lyrics are contrasted by a lighthearted beat, gang vocals and sometimes a kazoo, banjo or harmonica. Nate Allen (one half of the zany duo Destroy Nate Allen) is a white man in his 30’s taking a stern look in the mirror, acknowledging privilege and pain, and inviting you to Take Out The Trash.
