Join us for an evening of indie pop rock music featuring Sweet Spirit from Austin, Texas. The band are on a spring tour in support of their self-titled debut EP released in February. The EP was produced by Mike McCarthy who is known for his work with the Canadian power pop band Spoon.
Boy/girl alternate vocals and a horn section make this band stand out among the pack. This attracted the singer of Spoon who invited them on their tour and hooked them up with their producer, McCarthy. A full album is also in the works for release this summer on indie label Nine Mile Records.
The band has been receiving numerous accolades in their hometown and after three shows at this year's SXSW music festival, the rest of the country is catching on as well.
