Not a dirty night

Ahhh home at the Dirty Dog ( You have to love your own favorite little spot in Austin. Whether it be up north, Down Town, or [gasp] south of the river. It is all good. So the Dirty Dog is definitely one of my very few haunts that I will terrorize. This particular night was an accidental enjoyment of a band I have been trying to see for several months, The Dave Scher Trio (group). Wandering in for my ears to take a break from another show I was reviewing (see  previous post) is how this happened.

The Dave Scher Group, another band comprised of a keyboardist, guitarist/singer, and  a drummer. Sound familiar Austin? Well it does, BUT it's not! The Dave Scher Group has all the makings and the sound, but it is something different.
The sound is hauntingly comfortable and familiar, but definitively different enough to keep your attention to what is next. The lead, Dave, has a little sense of humor and humility. Enough to have you smiling and entertained during the set and in between the songs. With songs that start slow and you seem to recognize and always end up with a driving upbeat rhythm, it is fucking fun to be in the crowd and feeling it.
Find these guys, seek them out, and have a fun night!
