In House #1651: The Court & Spark Tonight in Salt Lake City; New Bonnie Prince Billy
From where we sit at least, San Francisco's Court & Spark remain a criminally overlooked band, at least as deserving as My Morning Jacket or the Drive-By Truckers of NPR praise, festival dates, and album sales. Their catalog includes four solid releases, including this year's Hearts, which continues the sonic adventurousness the band displayed on Witch Season and the Dead Diamond River EP, both released in 2004. Currently touring through mid-July, the Court & Spark plays Kilby Court in Salt Lake City tonight. More on the band is here.
