Overdue Recap: KCRW & Invisible Children Benefit feat. Middle Brother, Mountain Man, more
A few weeks ago, Jeff and I ventured up to LA to catch the KCRW benefit for San Diego based non-profit, Invisible Children, featuring Middle Brother. The band is made up of Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, John McCauley of Deer Tick and Matthew Vasquez of Delta Spirit. They shared the night with some incredible performance by Mountain Man, Cass McCombs, Guards, Blake Mills and an acoustic set by John McCauley. It was a fantastic night of incredible music and it was such a pleasure to witness Middle Brother. Though it wasn't their first show ever, it was still a debut of sorts and I look forward to the supergroup's album which drops on March 1. You can download "Me Me Me" for a taste (right click/save as). They'll be touring all over this spring so I suggest you keep an eye open for their amazing live show. You can read a full review of the show at KCRW.
