AC/DC have been denizens of the stadium for decades, but their natural habitat, surely, is the greasy club with sweat dripping from the ceiling. Dirty DC embody this dichotomy perfectly. A highly professional tribute act, albeit more Brian Johnson than Bon Scott, they have worked hard at reproducing AC/DC’s deceptive simplicity: they look and sound the part. But it’s attitude, not guitar parts, mannerisms or schoolboy shorts that make for a great show, however. Oh, and great songs. And while age may wither the band itself, Dirty DC do rock as it should be done. The floor shook. Literally.
