FYM PREVIEW: DAWES LIVE AT THE NEPTUNE THEATRE • 11.11.11 • SEATTLE WA, USA
A week from today, Friday November 11th, 2011 -DAWES will be performing live at The Neptune Theatre (Seattle Washington USA) co-headlining with Blitzen Trapper (SubPop Records). This past June FYM had the pleasure of seeing Dawes live at The Moore Theatre -just a few days after the release of their second full-length masterpiece 'Nothing is Wrong' (an FYM Album of the Year contender). Below we feature our favorite photo we shot from that night of the Goldsmith Brothers -Taylor (lead singer/guitarist) and Griffin (vocalist/drums):
Over the past few months, Dawes has seen both (well-deserved) critical and commercial success from their latest record. They even gained peerless respect/opportunities to play with some of their heroes: Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Jackson Browne. VH1 recently showcased Dawes as their artist You Oughta Know in September -the exposure has made their single Time Spent in Los Angeles a mainstay on the VH1 Top 20 Music Video Countdown (currently at #9).Watch the featured video below:
The album itself- Nothing is Wrong, is a timeless rock n' roll record, full of fresh takes on warm, vintage sound. Lyrically, Taylor Goldsmith is an incredible storyteller -winding a cannery row of vivid tales, mixed emotions, and honest common-man fire into a boundless undeniably relatable album... We truly can't wait to hear these tunes live again. FYM hopes to see you next Friday in Seattle for Dawes/Blitzen Trapper at The Neptune Theatre, for ticket information click HERE. Cheers, FYM.
