The Nightowls w/ The Letters Home
September 12, 2015 · 8:00pm
It’s 1,390 miles from Austin, Texas to Detroit, but when Austin band The Nightowls rev their musical engines, that distance disappears with the speed of sound. But The Nightowls not only channel the Motor City’s classic dancin’-in-the-street beats; they build on them to create an irresistible neo-soul sound that’s all their own.
The Letters Home
The Letters Home are princes of ‘Dirty Soul Rock’. Their electric soul ballads are recklessly belted from a towering baritone backed by melodic drumming, buzzsaw-like guitar riffs, and a rich, creamy horn section. Throwing performance rules out the window, their live shows are a teetering battle between emotional intensity and Rock finesse.
