The Deadstring Brothers seem to be on a mission to play as many shows as possible. They were just in Madison in November playing the basement, and they were back again tonight with new songs (and if you were lucky like me, an advance copy of the new record.) Cannery Row was recorded in Nashville between touring the US and Europe. Instead of the predominant Rolling Stones influence that everyone who writes about the band mentions (legitimately), there's a mellower, organ heavy vibe on this record more reminiscent of the Band. There weren't a lot of people out tonight, it was a Sunday and the weather was terrible, but those that were got a great show. Those that were seeing them for the first time will definitely be back the next time the band hits town.
