Giant Sand

- June 13, 2018

Front man Howe Gelb recently re-recorded their 1985 debut album and decided to take it on tour. Along with original drummer Winston Watson, the four-guitar band’s sound at the Concorde was more raw than previous tours, the Americana songs given a raucous edge. There were no breaks between songs, aside for some old-time Country interludes, but the interaction on stage was very playful. Typically contrary, the songs weren’t in album order and the set ended with a ferocious, garage-rock ‘Tumble And Tear’ before Gelb’s support act daughter Patsy joined for a surprisingly authentic encore of Iggy’s ‘Lust For Life’.
