Dawes with Opening Act Erin Rae


From the first downbeat, Good Luck With Whatever, the seventh studio Album by the Los Angeles based rock band Dawes, sets a tone all its own. The album unfurls with the crunchy chordal cadence of what could only be Goldsmith’s guitar. As the band quickly hop their way aboard this rhythmic rail car, we find  ourselves thinking “Hey, these guys are pretty good. I’m so glad you dragged  me to see some live music!” — “Still Feel Like A Kid” serves as a reminder  that we all love a good filet, but there’s no shame in still ordering off the kids  menu from time to time. You can hear the eye contact in the room, you can see  the lyrics as they fly from Goldsmith’s mouth straight into your ears, you’ll find  yourself singing along to a song you’re hearing for the first time. It’s fresh, it’s  raw, it’s a four tiered seafood tower of all American ear candy. Think “I Don’t  Wanna Grow Up, I’m A Toys R Us Kid” meets “I Wanna Be Sedated”.  

Recorded at the historic RCA studios in Nashville Tennessee, the boys teamed  up with six time Grammy award winning producer Dave “Corn On The” Cobb  (Brandi, Jasi, Chrisi, Stergi, etc) and just decided to LET IT RIP. “We were out  in Nashville for just under 730 hours, or 1 human month” says bass player and  resident ‘problem child’ Wylie Gelber. “We wanted that sloth like urgency, that  cold heat, that all knowing curiosity.  A culmination of their entire catalogue and career all wrapped up in nine tracks.  If you don’t know Dawes by now, you will never never never know them…

Dawes is an American folk rock band from Los Angeles, California. Dawes is composed of brothers Taylor (guitars and vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), along with Wylie Gelber (bass) and Lee Pardini (keyboards). Dawes was formed from the band Simon Dawes after the departure of co-songwriter Blake Mills, subsequently abandoning a post-punk sound in favor of folk rock. Dawes has been described as having a Laurel Canyon sound derived from artists such as Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. At the invitation of producer Jonathan Wilson, the band joined a local informal jam session that included Conor Oberst, The Black Crowes's Chris Robinson, and Benmont Tench.
Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles are an American folk pop band from Nashville, Tennessee. The band is led by singer Erin Rae McKaskle. According to Rolling Stone, Erin Rae "makes smooth-edged music for Sunday afternoons" and "her arrangements — anchored by pedal-steel guitar and the steady strum of an acoustic guitar — may be rooted in modern-day indie folk, but the songs themselves rustle up comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne". Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles formed in 2012 with the release of an EP titled Crazy Talk. In 2015, Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles released their debut full-length album titled Soon Enough.
