Driving down lonely highways in the dead of night. Forgetting yourself in the dark glow of a neon sign as you wait for last call. Wistfully dreaming of better days. These are all activities that one should engage in before checking out crooner Daughn (pronounced “Don”) Gibson and his dubbified brand of old timey country. Or just listen to his fantastic new album on White Denim, All Hell (TMT Review).
Gibson is set to play a small number of shows around the Northeast starting tomorrow, including two gigs in Toronto as part of the NXNE festival, the great white North’s answer to Austin’s SXSW. I’m assuming Gibson will be personally driving a big rig to each of these shows and the lack of destinations is just a reflection of high gas prices. Let’s hope Daughn expands his itinerary if and when the economy gets out of the shitter.
