Danvilles - This was the first time I experienced this Virginia based twin guitar quartet and I walk away impressed. They rocked hard with bluesy and western swing undercurrents. At times they reminded me of thick and heavy Reverend Horton Heat, at other times it was bit more like Graveyard. The audience tonight was even more self-indulgent than a usual Friday night crowd and were pretty dead with many of them leaving after the first band played so they could continue their mundane conversations shouted atop cliched DJ noise in another locale. Or perhaps, I exagerrate. The Danvilles deserved a bit better as they did a solid job. And the 18 people that remained (from 60-70) seemed to really enjoy this set.
Black Dog Prowl - I cut out early since this band is playing in town on Saturday night and I'll check out their set then. But that gives me time to head over to the Red Palace.
