Song of the Day #132 – Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs

Today’s post features a couple of concert videos recorded by yours truly. I’ve written about Star Anna before (see Song of the Day #91) but last night, for the first time, I got a chance to see her perform live with her five piece band. Though often called an alt-country artist, I think that category is too limiting – with vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Janis Joplin, Star Anna mixes elements of blues, rock, roots and country into an original and accessible sound.

We were treated to a bunch of crowd favorites (check out her two CDs, both of which are excellent) along with some great sounding new material destined for an upcoming release. All in all, it was a fun way to spend the night before the night before New Years Day.

More videos from this show are available on my youtube channel.
