Delta Spirit played to a sold out crowd at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Saturday night (2/21). Throughout the set they were joined on stage by friends and guests, members of opening bands Other Lives and Dawes included.
One day earlier, Daytrotter released a new live session...
"The San Diego-based group doesn't necessarily need the monetary support as it's been selling out venues left and right, touring with the splendid support acts of Dawes and Other Lives, but Delta Spirit could literally be considered America and it makes the kind of music that the country should want to support more and be prouder of than an automobile manufacturing company based in the Motor City. It's got the heart and soul of a Motown and a passionate passion for everything that it puts to tape, for everyone it reduces to blubbering, awestruck chills when it's seen live and in person. It, they (these five guys) deserve everything and more, simply for the way that they make a person rethink what they knew or understood about electricity."
