(Sorry I’m just now getting around to posting this. I’ll spare you the excuses.)
The L.A.-based country-rock band Dawes played a fine, fine show Tuesday night for a good-sized crowd at Bend’s Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom. I have to admit: I was really impressed with the turnout, especially considering it was a Tuesday in January and the show wasn’t announced until the last minute.
By the end of the night, though, it made sense; more people love this band than I realized. Or, at least, they definitely love one of this band’s songs. I have never been in the middle of as loud a singalong as I was on Tuesday.
I’ll have more details in next Friday’s GO! Magazine, but for now, enjoy video of “Time Spent in Los Angeles,” a warm, well-bred pop song that frontman Taylor Goldsmith said would be on Dawes’ new album, due out this year.
