Dawes and Blitzen Trapper at Club Dada

It’s bands like Blitzen Trapper and Dawes that keep me continually jazzed about music. Currently on tour as co-headliners, the two bands stopped at Club Dada last week (Dawes’s fifth time in Dallas) to rock a back porch party on the outside patio, courtesy of the freakin’ amazing nighttime weather North Texas is privy to well into the month of October.

Alt-country indie-rockers Blitzen Trapper took the stage first, playing “Evening Star,” “Astronaut” and murderous “Black River Killer;” the songs fading into one another over the feedback.

It was a pretty non-stereotypical night, until drummer Brian Adrian Koch started the inevitable “Deep In the Heart of Texas” chant, which everyone sang along to like a call-and-response.

“Is that annoying?” lead singer Eric Earley asked.

It may be, but it always works. If we were truly annoyed, no one would sing along. But it’s like a sixth sense for Texans; someone starts the song, and we can’t help but clap along.

You might be surprised to know: They didn’t play “Furr”

You won’t be surprised to know: Bob was present, in all his Deep Ellum, keyboard-toting glory
