I honestly don't know why it's taken me so long to catch Dead Sara but boy am I ever glad I finally came around; seeing Dead Sara perform live was a pure, visceral experience and a lot of fun.
The LA rockers spent the last night of their current tour in support of the band's second album, "Pleasure to Meet You," (available now via Pocket Kid Records) at Pomona's Glass House on Friday night. More than a few out-of-towners were in the audience judging by the call backs to previous shows on the tour. "Anbody here from Santa Barbara?" asked singer Emily Armstrong at one point, to which she got a vocal response from the crowd.
It's not hard to see why the band has developed such a fiercely devoted following. The band held absolutely nothing back during their set, running through tracks new and old and even a few covers including a version of "Testify" that absolutely destroyed and sent bassist Chris Null into the crowd for a hell of a finale.
