I find I encounter this issue frequently: I am going to a concert, and I range from vaguely familiar with to wholeheartedly obsessed with one of the bands, and am completely clueless about the opener or headliner or co-headliner or whatever other band. So here's a novel idea--a tour sampler featuring glimpses of the bands playing to give curious listeners an idea of what to expect. Other bands, take note, because what Dawes and Blitzen Trapper have done here is fantastic, and, in my opinion, immensely helpful in deciding on a concert. Their free sampler EP requires an email address for immediate download, and then six tracks of folk-infused, sad-eyed pop-rock is at your fingertips. Download and enjoy.
