Dawes featuring Duane Betts on guitar. Bijou Theatre. Apr. 22 8 pm. “Things Happen”, “Right on Time” and more heard on Volunteer Radio.
April 22 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Dawes supporting their latest album “All Your Favorite Bands.”
‘And may all your favorite bands stay together,’ sings Taylor Goldsmith on the title track to Dawes’ fourth album, All Your Favorite Bands , on their own HUB Records, harking back to a time when that very special rock group helped define who you were, expressing the joy and passion the foursome put into the release. ‘Your favorite band can identify you, express how you see yourself,’ explains Goldsmith, who co-wrote the song with Jonny Fritz and is the sole author of the album’s other eight tracks. ‘They enable you to articulate your feelings through the way they play their instruments and the lyrics.’ On All Your Favorite Bands , Dawes manage to transcend their well-documented Southern California influences to establish their own sound and themes, which range from the glass half full optimism of the first single, ‘Things Happen’ and the minor-chord tension of ‘I Can’t Think About It Now’ (featuring background vocals from Gillian Welch and the McCrary Sisters) to the soulful gospel of ‘Waiting for Your Call,’ the rocking tongue-in-cheek lyrics of ‘Right On Time’ and the epic, Dylan-esque set piece, ‘Now That It’s Too Late, Maria.’
