The Barrel Room Gets Ready For DARA
Dara has had a lot of fun working on our music these last few months. The studio is really a spiritual place where we can commune with the music as it crystallizes into an album. As exciting as it is to be a part of, at some point we start wanting to play out again. We’ve had a few opportunities that didn’t pan out for one reason or another. But at long last, after a two month hiatus, DARA will be making our triumphant return to the stage in Salt Lake City, December 5th for a no holds barred musical throw down at Barrel Room!!!!
The thrill of a performance is something that can be felt by everyone in the venue. Whether an enormous festival, or an intimate lounge, the energy of a performance gets into the bones of everybody involved. My favorite part about it is that it’s a feedback loop. The more energy the band puts out, the more energy the audience has. The more energy the audience is giving out the more the band will feed on that and exude more of its own. That loop is a beautiful thing.
The Barrel Room is a wonderful venue. It is an intimate venue which knows how to treat both it’s patrons, and it’s performers. I haven’t performed there yet, but have thoroughly enjoyed all of the shows that I’ve been to there. The room is reminiscent of a speakeasy from the roarin’ 20’s. Low lighting in the are brick basement makes for a warm venue to play, and listen.
I’m stoked to be playing another show, at one of Utah’s finest establishments. I can feel the excitement building for the show, both within DARA, and with our fans online. I certainly know where I’ll be the evening of Dec 5th, Do You?
Sending love from DARA,
