It's official: Daniel Street is closing at the end of the year.
As much as this unwelcome and downright disturbing news sucks, there are still a handful of fantastic shows booked there, the first of which is tonight.
It's Justin Townes Earle. He's an old school roots rocker type, and his current band sounds... alot like Bob Dylan's current band. It's Americana at its finest, and it's modern too, not just some retro rehash.
They totally crushed it on Letterman earlier in the year. Watch the clip and then you may have to seriously consider going to the show tonight. Even the sound in the video is particularly good for late night TV (the bass is so deep and clear!). Check it out:
Oh, and yes, he's Steve Earle's son. And the "Townes" part of his name was a nod to Townes Van Zandt. The man's got music in his blood.
