Monday, November 10th marked the two year anniversary of SDDialedIn.com. Rosey and her crew of bloggers have been promoting the local scene for a while now, and we are grateful for that. The evening featured two of my favorite local acts, Joel P West and Writer. Joel's recent release, Dust Jacket, came to life with additions on cello, along with percussion, xylophone and backing vocals from multi-instrumentalist Darla Hawn.
Writer's new album, Blood Drops, has been in my constant rotation all summer, and I was excited to hear the new tracks performed live. Their set was phenominal. It's refreshing to see a simple formula executed so well. From their song structure to their poster and album design, everything is clean.
Catch Joel this Thursday (Nov. 20th) at Lestat's with Molly Jenson.
Writer plays the Ruby Room with Jamuel Saxson Nov. 26th.
