Delta Spirit live at the LaguMiniAmphitheaterette Petaluma, CA 2015
Sometimes, our friendships with bands develop in ways that are above and beyond our control, and even our awareness. At least that was the case with our dear friends, Delta Spirit. Many of us had been fans of Delta Spirit since their debut LP "Ode to Sunshine" back in 2008. Little did we know, the band was fans of Lagunitas, too! In the midst of trying to book them for our CouchTrippin' to Austin Tour 2015, we were surprised to see two of our amazing East-ish Coast-based Lagunators (Jimmy Lyons & John Black) thanked in the liner notes of the bands' latest album! Wait… WhhHHHaAaat?! We needed no more confirmation that Delta Spirit and Lagunitas were meant to hang… so CouchTrippin to Austin 2015 we went, with the Petaluma LaguMiniAmphitheaterette soon to follow. Indeed, there are, and were, faces melted at every show and we feel lucky to have them in our midst! Shred on, Delta Spirit… (and check out a backflip here at the brewery!
