The Delta Saints Live in Concert
The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents a night of downhome bayou rock with the Delta Saints live in concert on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013 as part of its annual Holiday Concert Series. Tickets are $22 general admission on the floor and $25 reserved seats in the balcony. (A nominal ticketing fee applies.) The doors open at 8 p.m. and the show is at 8:30. The Delta Saints are not what they say they are. Delta? Absolutely. But saints? One might call them 'cautionary tales' long before the terms 'saints' came to mind however, there is something devout about their bayou rock, a dirty, distinct sound they've zealously refined on their debut full-length "Death Letter Jubliee." Alternating between raucous melodies and slow-burning odes to the devil in his many forms, Ben Ringel (vocals/dobro), Dylan Fitch (guitar), David Supica (bass) and Ben Azzi (drums) explores themes of difficult love, the wanderer's high road and the moral low road using their unconscious fascination with the classical elements — earth, air, fire and water — as a natural vehicle for their briny narratives. With their latest album, The Delta Saints are blooming into life not as a pretty flower might, but perhaps a mushroom explosion from an atomic bomb or a feral thunderhead.
