Many thanks to our friend and fellow Gig Goer Paul Franklin for the heads up on this! I had a quick listen online and instantly loved the Hammond organ and pedal steel they use. Don't even get me started on how gorgeous the vocalist sounds!
The H&H website says this about the band: The Delines are led by vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations TX), alongside the keyboard work of Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) as well as fellow Portlanders Sean Oldham and songwriter/novelist Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine) and on pedal steel, Tucker Jackson (Minus 5). Vlautin is no stranger to critical acclaim in the UK, enjoying cult success and stellar reviews from the like of Uncut, The Observer, The Times and Q Magazine as the front man of Portland alt-country outfit Richmond Fontaine.

You can hear one of their tracks online:
We can meet in the pub downstairs, in the front bar over by the sofas (look out for the meetup sign). I'll have the Gig Goers mobile phone on the night so just call if you're having trouble locating the group, or would like to be met at the door.
We can meet in the pub at 7.30pm and go upstairs for the band at 8pm.
