6/10/09 - Dear and the Headlights, Dirty Sweet

headed to the Door on wednesday night to catch the greatness of Dear and the Headlights. got there in time to just miss Stavely's set, which pissed me off to no end - been tryin for years to catch them again. anywho...

Dirty Sweet, from San Diego, was the first band i saw. lotsa long-hairs on stage. some pretty decent bluesy southern rock, a la Black Crowes. not my kind of thing, but thot they did it pretty well.
headlining was the awesomeness of Dear and the Headlights, from Arizona, touring in support of their new album 'Drunk Like Bible Times'. saw these guys almost 2 years ago in denton and loved 'em. and my gawd, what an awesome, super-high-energy performance wednesday night. Ian's voice can come across as a bit whiney on the cd, but live, it works so well at capturing the emotion and energy of their songs. loved singing along with the old songs, loved the new ones. truly a fantastic set, definitely worth the trip.
