When a local band plays the mainstage in their hometown, do you consider them a “local” band still? Especially when they’ve been on tours with Cold War Kids and Tokyo Police Club, and are embarking on tours with Dr. Dog and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah this fall? Needless to say, the boys of Delta Spirit are doing well, and good for them. I really like their version of gospel and soul-infused Americana folk music – it makes you dance, and it makes you want to sing along. This was my second time seeing them, and they really owned the big stage. Quite a step up from the stage at the Casbah opening for Dr. Dog, I’d say. They drew a decent crowd, even though there still weren’t that many people at the festival at that point. I’m really looking forward to their album, which should be coming out soon.
