We had the good fortune to have the Sons Of Bill drop by Austin and play Emo's this past Sunday made for an unpleasant Monday (thanks to Jack Daniels) but well worth it. The crowd was sort of sparse but definitely were into the band. And the band definitely came to rock and rock they did.
Given our familiarity with only the Sons Of Bill's latest One Town Away, we were thrilled with the new tunes ("This Losing Fight", "Lost Loves And Indie Rockers", "Valley Of The Dead") and the ones from their previous effort, A Far Cry From Freedom ("Far Cry", "Roll On Jordan", "Whispering"). The cover Neil Young's "Unknown Legend" was what put the show over the top for us.
Come back soon, Sons Of Bill. We'll bring more people next time.
