Delta Spirit – 2008 Tour Dates (tonight/CMJ/ACL/Dr Dog)

Delta SpiritDelta Spirit

Delta Spirit‘s music unintentionally mingles two trends percolating through indie rock right now. One is a return to more traditional folk — minus the “freak” qualifier that is associated with Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart. The other is the conspicuous absence of irony, which has been a revered ideal since the Arcade Fire cropped up a few years ago sporting an avid sincerity. The Delta Spirit combines both methods into a stirring batch of rock that evokes Wilco circa “Being There,” even though Mr. Vasquez isn’t as enamored with psychedelic pop songwriting.” [NY Sun]

Delta Spirit (you may have seen them on Conan O’Brien last night) play a show at Mercury Lounge tonight (Sept 4) with Salt and Samovar, Action Painters and Peasant. From there they leave on a tour with Dr. Dog and even after that they continue to tour the country non-stop until they come back to NYC at the end of October to play a show or two for CMJ. Along the way they they also make stops at Austin City Limits and Pop Montreal. All dates below…
