We at RFC are pretty sweet on Dawes. Last night I finally got to see why. We all love a solid rock band of course, and as expected Dawes delivered a set of passionate, relatable rock songs laced with west coast vibe and confidence. What impressed me most though was their showmanship. We've talked a lot about how we love Dawes for their music and for being generally awesome dudes, but sometimes all bets are off once you see the live show. Dawes is a band of performers, a group of artists who give the impression that they're not having a good time unless every single one of us is too. Their energy was captivating and they made good work of their first sold-out show of the tour. Here's hoping for many more. Full photo set from last night here.
Editor's Note: Wondering what to expect from the Goldmiths on their sophomore release? It might not be due until next year but occasional RFC guest blogger Mike Roeder handicapped the quartet's next disc on his blog, Play B-Sides.
