THE DEAR HUNTER Live at Gas Monkey Bar N Grill
Waiting in line at Gas Monkey’s Bar & Grill you get a chance to really look at your surroundings and the people in them. At first glance, if I were to be judgmental, the piercing of various body parts, tattoos, weird hairstyles and clothing styles would have sent me back to the car never looking back. Kept going, got our tickets and made our way to the outdoor concert area. Gas Monkey Bar & Grill in Dallas, Texas was pretty cool. Food is good, staff was awesome, venue was outdoor in a rustic with a little bit of industrial style theme . Definitely needs to be on your bucket list if you haven’t already been there.
The Dear Hunter? A rock band? Sounds more like a book title than a rock band name. From Providence, RI these guys made Dallas, Texas and Gas Monkey Bar & Grill rock. WOW! Never judge a book by its cover or in this case a band by its name. Wait, The Thief, Mustard Gas, The Old Haunt, Bittersuits, Thins That Hide Away, Misplaced Devotion, Waves, Night On The Town, Smiling Swine, Home, Church, King of Swords, Road Parts and Whisper. The music was good and add the techno lighting to that and you have a pretty good show to watch. Me not being a “rocker” wasn’t really expecting to find myself rocking it out with the best of them but hey, it happens. Not too heavy, not too screamy, just kind of cool. I would sit and listen to these guys again if given the opportunity.
If you get the opportunity to go to Gas Monkey Bar and Grill in Dallas, Texas and there is a band playing that you have never heard of go anyway. The outdoor venue is nice so you can hang out and not feel crowded. Enjoy the atmosphere and who knows you might just find you like the bands. While you are there tell them that Will and Denyse from Infrared Magazine sent you.
