I was nearly giddy with anticipation as I headed to Arts at the Armory to see two of my favorite bands. The headliner was Darlingside performing the first release show for their latest album, Birds Say. Opening for them was Laney Jones and the Spirits.
I was first in line to get through the doors, but fast at my heels were fans of one of the bands. They both became fans of the other band by the end of the show!
I may be a bit biased when it comes to Laney Jones and the Spirits because they are friends, but I watched the reaction of the audience at the Extended Play Sessions where they performed on Friday night and saw that everyone in the room was as enthralled with this band as I am. Phew!
You may wonder what ‘retro majestic indie rock’ (Laney’s self-description) is; my answer to that is that you should listen to the band’s new music which is not yet out on an album. Here’s a video of one of the songs performed at this Session.
