Sunday December 8, 2013 marks the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon’s tragic death. For many John Lennon taught us that music can be so much more than a nice melody and some harmonies. He taught us the power music has to create and inspire meaningful change.
We will open a very big night of music and community on Cause Rock with a tribute to John Lennon, his life, his eternal light, and his music.
Delta Rae has just released it’s new EP “Chasing Twisters”, we have a Cities 97 exclusive. Delta Rae was hanging out at home in Raleigh-Durham one afternoon, and received a call from Rob Cavollo, music producer and Chairman of Warner Brothers Music. Rob invited Delta Rae to Los Angeles to make a record and the result is “Chasing Twisters”.
Cause Rock is honored to debut the single “Chasing Twisters” as we love Delta Rae and think they are one of the most exciting live acts we have ever seen. Delta Rae is like waking up from a Fleetwood Mac “Rumors” era hangover on a Sunday morning in the American South. We love their amazing harmonies, their playful and subtle nods to southern culture, and their soulful honest songs about everyday people and broken heroes. Delta Rae returns to the Twin Cities on April 17 for a show at the Varsity Theater. Tickets can be found here »
