Show Post: In House #1478
Chances are good that you're familiar with the duo playing at Salt Lake City's In the Venue tonight-- Iron & Wine and Calexico recently collaborated on the In the Reins EP (highlighted here) and are out on the road together. The plan for today's entry, then, was to give a little face time to a band you may not be so familiar with: San Francisco's Court & Spark, who were to be playing Kilby Court in Salt Lake City tomorrow night. Unfortunately, it appears that the band has been forced to cancel their planned fall tour for "a myriad of reasons which (they) can't/won't reveal." Nevertheless, the band gets some face time anyway as they've announced that they've recently finished their forthcoming album, I Want to Be a Gallant Rider Like My Father Was Before Me, due out on Absolutely Kosher in March. The planned release is the follow up to last year's very fine Witch Season, and the Court & Spark's fourth full-length overall.
In House #1478.
Focus: Iron & Wine and Calexico in Salt Lake City tonight, plus a spotlight on the Court & Spark and new music from C.Gibbs, Band of Horses and more.
BONUS- the Court & Spark live at the Doug Fir in Portland, OR (Summer, 2005)- "Sundowner, You" (MP3).
