Show Your Spirit

Last night, I had the pleasure of seeing The Duke Spirit. First time I'd seen them we were at an Urban Outfitters instore at SXSW. That might have spoiled me because we were RIGHT there, not more than 5 feet from them all, and it was daytime=great pics. I was excited to get to see them at night, at a club. Well, it was night, but more of a strain-your-neck-theater because they are opening for Snow Patrol. Leila Moss has the moves and sex appeal of PJ Harvey or Nikka Costa. Hopefully they'll come back for a headlining club tour. They are still on the road, so get to the venue early to catch the band that, in my opinion, is the one to watch.

I'm really liking what I've heard so far of Duke Spirit.

The new Snow Patrol CD is an entirely different issue. Painfully bad album.
