Band to know: Delta Spirit

Tonight Amanda and I will be venturing to the bustling metropolis of Dallas (yes, it is a bit of a drive from the Fort Worth ‘burbs) to see a rock and roll show. It will be my first show at a club to see in Dallas (excluding Neil Young and Radiohead at SuperPages a while back) since probably Wolfmother at the Gypsy Ballroom back in like ’07. Needless to say, I pretty stoked.

The band is Delta Spirit. If you like good music, you will like them. Their lead singer reminds me of a young Springsteen with that whole working-class-no-bullshit swagger, and their music matches.  I share this because you should go too if you’re free on this Thursday night. It’s at The Loft, which is above the Palladium, and from what I head it’s an intimate little joint. When the Yelp reviews are negative because of lack of space and not being able to see over the person in front of you, I think to my favorite places in Austin (Parish, Antone’s) and get excited. Tickets are $14. They have two openers who I’ve never heard of and I don’t believe in researching openers beforehand so as not to spoil the fun. See you there.

Here’s a taste of Delta Spirit, who just dropped their second album last month. Here’s my favorite track off of that. I’ve seen them a couple of times and they put on a helluva show.

More tracks after the jump. Continue reading

Last night was the most vivid, real and enjoyable concert experience I’ve ever had. Everything about it was just about perfect. My detailed run down after the jump.

Tonight’s The Night

Never has that phrase had such an appropriate application in my life. Tonight, my friends, I achieve a life goal. Neil Young is playing Meyerson Symphony Center tonight in Dallas and I, along with my lovely mother, will be there in the not-so-cheap seats.

My mood? Excited. Elated. Impatient. But most of all: nervous.
