It's rare for a band's second release to be a live recording. But then there's nothing typical about The Band Of Heathens. Live At Antone's - released here on DVD and CD - finds their concept of songwriters in the round with a rhythm section moving into exciting new territory. Now truly a magical musical entity, one that's comprised of singers/songwriters/guitar-pickers Colin Brooks, Gordy Quist and Ed Jurdi, bassist Seth Whitney and drummer John Chipman following in the footsteps of legendary names of Americana as The Band, Little Feat and Townes Van Zandt. Live at Antone's, recorded in June of 2007, shows why the quintet captured 2007's Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards. It's true that it was the first time they ever used a set list, but like all of their shows, this performance was an exhilarating mix of familiar tunes and some that were previously unrecorded. Throughout, the Heathens' refined brand of soul, folk and country shines in a new way.
