The subdudes @ The State Theater

On November 8th we were able to attend the subdudes show at The State Theater in Falls Church, Virginia. Their current tour is in support of their latest album Street Symphony and from the songs we heard, this album could be better than Behind the Levee. My favorite song: Poor Man’s Paradise. For those unfamiliar with the subdudes, they are a New Orleans band that blends that cities funk and blues sound with unique percussions and incredible vocal harmonies. These vocals were particularly on display when the band moved into the audience and sang a few songs with Tommy Malone playing an acoustic guitar and Steve Amedée, John Magnie, and Tim Cook adding percussion and singing at times A cappella. Amazing - that was worth the price of admission itself.
