The Token Lounge, WESTLAND, MI
D.I. is a Southern California punk band featuring ex-Adolescents and Social Distortiondrummer Casey Royer on vocals. Royer formed the group after he and former Social Distortion original member Rikk Agnew (also formerly of Christian Death), left the original Mike Ness crew.
Since forming in 1982, D.I. has had many line-up changes and Royer has been the only constant member of the band. They almost usually consist of former members of The Adolescents and Social Distortion (including the Agnew brothers Rikk and Alfie). The band has continued to work to this day, although they have been inactive perodically, which include the band going on hiatus between albums. During their years of touring and recording albums, D.I. never gained a large mainstream success, but they have influenced many of today's later punk rock groups,
