Getting Our Jam On: Blitzen Trapper, Dawes, and the Belle Brigade

Monday, October 31, 2011

Of the many exciting things that happened this weekend, I have to say, one of the highlights was getting to go see the Dawes/Blitzen Trapper concert this weekend.  I had the opportunity to see Blitzen Trapper last year, but have been wanting to see Dawes for quite some time and let me tell you, they do not fail to disappoint.  Nothing short of spectacular. (We even got to meet the lead singer of Dawes, Taylor Goldsmith, Lauren and I were superfans and scored a picture, see below!)   
Just a few photos of the concert, my favorite is the one where Nick and Kaston were rocking out :)
I love the moment in a concert when everyone is singing at the top of their lungs and you can just feel this collective music love surrounding you, it was quite the experience.  We sang and danced, (I'm pretty sure I pulled out a two step with both Ian and Edward at one point,) and  I could barely speak by the end.  So worth it. 

Not to be lost in the Dawes & Blitzen Trapper lovefest, I was also introduced to a new band that I simply must share with you, The Belle Brigade.  They were the new openers for the show and literally blew my socks off.  (I mean it, my socks were missing.)  They're a headed by  brother and sister duo, Ethan and Barbara Gruska,  who not only totally know how to rock out, but belted out the most beautiful harmonies I've heard in a while. Do yourself a favor and check them out.  I can't wait to see them headlining their own shows soon, they are THAT GOOD.  Check out the following videos from all of the bands, they're so great!  


Can't wait to update y'all on the next show!
