UPCOMING: The Sadies - The Crofoot Pontiac - Thurs 8/19

We have been enjoying this new record from The Sadies
for the past few weeks and suggest you get to this upcoming show
The Sadies return
with Darker Circles
at the Crofoot Pike Room
Thursday August 19th

The best live band you’ve never seen (unless you’ve seen some of their friends, including Neko Case or Jenny Lewis live) are coming to the Pike Room at the Crofoot in Pontiac Aug. 19.

Darker Circles, being released on Yep Roc, is the follow-up to The Sadies’ acclaimed last album Country Club (feat. John Doe) and sees guitarist brothers Dallas and Travis Good, drummer Mike Belitsky and bassist Sean Dean again pair with legendary Jayhawk and sought-after producer Gary Louris. Furthering the focused songwriting and recording aspirations reached on New Seasons, The Sadies—who are widely known as having once been indie darling Neko Case’s backing band—bring their signature blend of country, psychedelic, rock and surf into rifle-scope focus on Darker Circles, further underscoring their reputations as musicians’ musicians.

If Darker Circles is about anything, it’s about improving on past successes. But, that’s been a theme for The Sadies since day one. From the foreboding “Cut Corners,” which evokes the band’s good friend and fellow Canadian Gordon Lightfoot, to the jangling Sweetheart of the Rodeo-esque lightness of “Postcards,” The Sadies’ maturation is apparent here, just as a fine wine gets better with age. In one turn as heavy as a sledge, and on the other flitting across melodies with the ease of so many sparrows, The Sadies prove once again that denying them now is simply prolonging your conversion. So go on, pull up that screeching wooden chair that bows with your weight. Slide it up next to the turntable and drop the needle, The Sadies are a sure thing….tomorrow isn’t.
