Routes & Branches 6/21/14

I had the chance to catch Dave & Phil Alvin at the Aladdin Theatre last night and they put on a great show. I never did see them play together as The Blasters, in fact I never had heard of either of them until I was working on my brother's house in Sacramento several years ago and heard a live broadcast of a concert by Dave and his Guilty Men. I immediately had to get my hands on some of Alvin's music. Ever since I have been a big fan and I'm glad to see the brothers performing together again even though I never saw them together back in their early years.
Although last night's show revolved around their new album of Big Bill Broonzy music, they mixed in several of Dave's tunes along with a few old Blasters Hits. An enjoyable evening was had by all.
