Dirty Heads
Aztec Theatre, San Antonio, TX, October 5, 2018

With all the stress in Austin this past weekend, it seemed like an appropriate time to peace out and relax with the ska/reggae vibes of The Dirty Heads as they took over a packed Aztec Theatre in San Antonio.  The set was dimly lit, punctuated by neon and other soft lights, bringing a strangely warm and inviting feeling into an otherwise dark space as the band launched out on the song My Sweet Summer.  With Reggae rhythms combined with their Hip Hop and Rock influences, the Dirty Heads had an audience swaying and dancing all the way from the front row to the balcony.  The band spent the first part of their set jamming through some notable hits such as Burn Slow, Dance All Night, and That’s All I Need, before pausing briefly to restructure the stage to accommodate an acoustic setup.  When they retook the stage they were sitting at the front of the stage with acoustic guitars in hand and playing through slower and more soulful fare such as Believe and Cabin By The Sea.  Ultimately though, The Dirty Heads closed out their set on the encore grouping of Franco Eyed, Oxygen, and Medusa.
