Dredg @ the Great American Music Hall (4/7/07)

The Easter Bunny came early this year with two great shows this Easter weekend. The first (Mew) I wrote about yesterday (see below or click here for the brief review.) The second show was at the Great American Music Hall in downtown San Francisco last night and featured a band that I've written about numerous times in the past -- like here and here and here... Dredg.

Dredg was playing the second of a two night set. The previous night the band played at San Francisco's Slim's, which is a great venue but unfortunately it was the same night as the Mew concert. Otherwise I would have most likely have tried to see both shows... Yeah, Dredg is that good!

Here's the first of three videos I captured last night -- the song is "Push Away":

The Great American was jammed with people -- as I expected for this sold out show -- and the band didn't disappoint, as usual! Mainly keeping focused on previously released material throughout the night, the band did play a few new tracks -- like Push Away (above).

Here's a classic, "Tanbark":

And another goodie, "Ode to the Sun":

The band was joined by two horn players for about 4 songs during their set along with a cool rendition of Happy Birthday for a girl in the crowd. Gavin (the lead singer) mentioned that he had just met the horn players in North Beach only a week earlier... Here's the best video clip of the night. Dredg's "Symbol Song":

I can't stress enough that you should give these guys a listen. They're more than deserving and have gotta break out one of these days!
