Lord Huron (7/14/13)

Thanks to being comprehensive with my blog, I "remembered" I had seen Lord Huron before (opening for the Rural Alberta Advantage in 2011).   I wasn't blow away then, but with a new album and a bunch of videos under their belt - I was interested to see what's changed.  But before we get to that, I was also excited to hear Escondido open, who have some killer tracks recorded that even have a little Neko Case vibe!  But live, they were OK.  I don't think the venue worked to their advantage - and the same goes for Lord Huron.  Being at the Grog Shop doesn't really suite alt-folk/country acts like these guys - especially as full as the venue was on this night (color me surprised!).  I bet this show would have been a lot better in the Beachland Tavern, and where they'd probably have to play for me to see them again.
