A friend introduced me to these guys this summer, I think they're great...this should be a fun, energetic show. I'd try to describe their sound but, well...I'm terrible at doing that. So just click on the link above, check out their music, and if you like it, come on out and see them play. I'll be someone near the Middle East for a beer before the show...details closer to the day of the show.
Delta Spirit (from allmusic):
After the San Diego-based emo outfit Noise Ratchet called it quits in 2004, co-founders Jon Jameson (bass) and Brandon Young (drums) decided to ditch their punk-influenced songwriting for something more soulful and rootsy. The two left Rick Rubin's American label (which had signed Noise Ratchet several years prior) and joined forces with vocalist Matthew Vasquez, guitarist Sean Walker, and multi-instrumentalist Kelly Winrich to form Delta Spirit. Pitching their style between the indie rock and alt-country camps, the group issued an EP entitled I Think I've Found It in 2006 and hit the road alongside Cold War Kids and Dr. Dog. Delta Spirit's debut album, Ode to Sunshine, was released by the bandmates themselves in 2007, followed by a remastered edition in 2008 courtesy of the band's new label, Rounder Records.
