An Evening with Dawes
Sunday, March 19, 2017
6259 N. College Avenue
21+, doors 7, show 8 PM, $25 presale, $30 door
I first saw Dawes in 2009 at Locals Only and wrote, "I predict a bright well-deserved future for them." I should have invested in the stock market that day, because I don't think I've ever made a prediction so spot on.
Eight years, five albums, and a boatload of new fans later, Dawes is still folk-rockin'.
The lineup hasn't changed much in that time. Brothers Taylor (vocals/guitar) and Griffin (vocals/drums) Goldsmith and Wylie Gelber (bass) have been in the band since the beginning. Lee Pardini (vocals/keyboards) joined the band last year.
On the "An Evening with Dawes" tour the band has been playing a two-set overview of their discography. I'm really looking forward to it!
Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.
