Dead Horses (5/1/18)

Dead Horses played a phenomenal set at the Beachland Tavern.  Their sound was so graceful, authentic and polished.  Great musicianship.  Their performance was worthy of a Ballroom crowd, but all the more lucky I felt being albe to see them in the Tavern.  I’ll also point out how much I enjoyed the ebb and flow between traditional country sounds and some more jazz / jam band components as well.  I liked them so much, I wanted to buy a t-shirt - but couldn’t bring myself to wear one that said “Dead Horses.”  :-P

Opening the show was Wildcard Leader, a couple of cool local guys (brothers) who I was able to hang out with afterward.  Most notable was how the vocals reminded me of John McCauley from Deer Tick.  And as you would expect with that comparison, the sound was a little rough around the edges.  These are some genuine, earnest and talented guys with a solid sound going for them.  Looking forward to catching them again.
