Hot damn, I like the way 2010 is shaping up. The news that one of my favorite bands is finally making their way to the West Coast in January has literally made my week. And there’s nothing that would make me more happy than to usher in a new decade with a scorching live set from the NY (by way of London) group. If you haven’t checked out their debut LP, Broken Side of Time, do so. It’s one of my favorite albums of 2009.
Brett Dennen’s show at The Independent in San Francisco has long since sold out. However, you can enter to win 2 spots on his guest list for any of his upcoming shows on his tour if you sign up for his email newsletter here.
Brett Dennen’s third album, ‘Hope for the Hopeless‘, is due out October 21 and will be followed by a 11 city mini tour, San Francisco included. The mini-tour is a return to the smaller venues Brett began playing just five years ago. Dennen and his full band are preparing a larger headlining tour for early 2009.
Take a listen to the track, ‘Make You Crazy’ featuring Femi Kuti and be sure to catch him at one of these stops.
