I love it when a band comes to the stage with all cylinders firing right from the start and that’s exactly what Chicago-based band The Kickback did on Saturday night, October 27th at The Prophet Bar in Deep Ellum (Dallas, TX). Kicking off with “Sting’s Teacher Years” from their latest EP of live and studio tracks, Kill Fee, the energy of the band was full on despite lead singer Billy Yost mentioning that the band had just finished a 9-hour drive from their last show in New Orleans. That level of engagement continued through their 55-minute set, including a blistering performance of an unrecorded song with the tentative title, “Rob My House” (request it when you see them live). While I’ve had the opportunity to interview the band last year, it was great to see them in action. Here are just a few of the upcoming tour dates to catch them live.
And for those who are interested, the pics of the band were taken with a Galaxy Nexus phone using the Little Orange Box camera app (Retro Camera).
