After rapidly shooting to singles success, Collapsis released their major-label debut around the turn of the millennium and disappeared almost as quickly as they had risen. This is the quartet's first show in a dozen years, offering a nostalgia trip for longtime fans and a second chance for those who missed the band's heyday. Singer-guitarist Mike Garrigan shaped the group from the collapse of iconic locals Queen Sarah Saturday and Dillon Fence; the former contributed guitarist Ryan Pickett and bassist Chris Holloway, while the latter gave the group its name ("Collapsis" was a Dillon Fence song) and drummer Scott Carle.

Together, the foursome made the type of melodic grunge typical of the time (characterized by big, bombastic refrains) interspersed with sensitive ballads carrying a country influence. The track "I.O.L. (I'm On-Line)" further dates the band, with lines like "Will you sign on tonight?/ Your pictures are on my hard drive" and "Don't try to call when I'm online." But the pop-rock from Dirty Wake holds up as well as any of its kind from the AOL era. —Spencer Griffith
