My second show Friday night was Big Daddy Love and The Pour House. Pseudo Blue was the opening act; I’m not how I’d categorize their music, but there was some sweet lead guitar. Plus, there was a fog machine. Thumbs up.
The Big Daddy Love crowd, actually, was even more fun than the barefoot band. These guys were great to watch, but I think the key to understanding their show is what it does to the fans.
There was dancin’, y’all- mostly “hold on to a tall can of PBR and pogo” kind of dancing. The crowd up front was so exuberant that I worried about them- were they sufficiently hydrated? Did Blonde Girl just land on that guy’s foot? Is Knee-Length Dreadlock Guy going to spill his beer, what with all the jumping? But they were, and she didn’t, and he didn’t. And wow. They were having a great time.
I like the Pour House and all. But I need a show of hands: how many of you would choose to be barefoot there?
