The Builders and the Butchers return to the Casbah for their first show in San Diego in more than a year.
I've been trying to take it easy the past couple nights. Despite the fact that the scene doesn't stop, I've got family in town, and well, priorities are priorities. That changes tonight when Murder By Death and the Builders and the Butchers return to the Casbah. I love Murder By Death, and the deep-baritone vocals of singer/guitarist Adam Turla always resurrect the ghosts of the old country with a modern spin. But the truth is I insanely love the Builders and the Butchers. You think you know what you're gonna get, especially when you see their giant box of percussive instruments for the crowd to play during their set -- or at the very least during the finale -- but the truth is that every show is better than the last, or maybe our brains can't really adequately recall just how much fun we have at each show. Whichever it is, I'll be there, right up front, joining the cacophony of noise that comes from the stage time after time. Check out this video from one of their past performances at the Casbah.
