22 Jul Then Again At The Borderline.
Following on from Tuesday night at The Slaughtered Lamb, Wednesday we were all down at The Borderline, set to do it all over again.
As promised, Dawes did indeed crank up the sound for this one. They pulled out all the stops and went and totally rocked out, frontman Taylor Goldsmith successfully commanding the audience’s attention throughout the whole of their set. Dawes’ cover of choice for the night was Little Feat’s Long Distance Love, sung by super-talented young drummer, Griffin Goldsmith.
Jonathan Wilson‘s set, once again making full use of Dawes as something rather more than just a backing band, was pretty damn special too. Obviously it was all made that bit more special when Jackson Browne set foot on stage. There were a few Warren Zevon covers, which were received with much enthusiasm. In fact, HERE‘s a rather good video of “everyone” performing Play It All Night Long.
To hell with subtle name dropping: Caitlin Rose + band, Judie Tzuke, Roy Harper, Chuck Prophet and Foster The People were all amongst those lucky few who made it down to the gigs, along with what seemed to us like half of Fleet Street.
