The Warm Up
with Dawes

Today on The Warm Up we are super excited to have the band Dawes from Los Angeles. It was just serendipity that their label mates, Lucero, just happen to be at Ardent Studios recording their new album. Dawes is playing Minglewood Hall TONIGHT with M.Ward

Most of the time when we invite bands to come to record an episode of The Warm Up, the invite also includes a trip to the Stax Museum of American Soul with the owner of Ardent Studios, John Fry, as the band’s personal tour guide (as long as he is available, John loves taking bands to the museum and sharing the stories that are not on the placards.)

Sometimes when we talk to managers or PR folks, their immediate response to the invitation is, “How many hits does your site get?”

To which we immediately assume that they did not actually read our invitation.  We believe this because of the excited reaction that we get from bands like Dawes after they spend the afternoon with John – it’s really a once in a lifetime experience.  And we think it rubs off on the band’s performance. Just take a listen…
