Post #197: Dawes - "So Well" and "Million Dollar Bill"

Post #197:  Every once in a while, I come across a band that blows me away in concert, and that is exactly what Dawes did to me when I saw them open for Cory Chisel at the Triple Rock in Minneapolis over a year and a half ago.

If you missed it, I posted a live video of them HERE back in November, playing a song from their debut album North Hills

I've had the opportunity to see them one more time since, at First Avenue, which at the time was the largest crowd they had ever played for at a venue.

Hands down, they put on one of the best live shows I have ever seen.  So much energy.  So much passion.  You can tell they are having fun.

Their second release, Nothing is Wrong, came out today, and needless to say, I have been very excited for this one.

This is where you will find both "So Well" and "Million Dollar Bill"

After that first small show at the Triple Rock, I knew I had witnessed something special, and made the prediction that they will be 'the next big thing'.

I'm excited to see them gain popularity, but a part of me will miss that feeling I had at the Triple Rock, of having discovered something amazing.  Something that I'm sure most of their fans felt during their first experience as well.
