Don't wrestle with the night

I've been waiting for Dry The River to come play a show in LA and I was excited when they finally did.  Even with high expectations, they didn't disappoint at all.  It felt so good to see a great live act again.  Some time last year when I first heard "New Ceremony", it gave me chills.  It was a heavy and hopeful song that was so beautiful, and the vocals had a Jeff Buckley magical quality to it.  "No Rest" is pretty awesome, too.  I believe they only have an EP out and I couldn't find a U.S. release date for their album, but I will definitely be picking up a copy as soon as it's out.
