We stopped by Billy’s Lounge Sept 8th 2010 to see what was happening for the cd release of the new album by Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys. It is called the Price You Pay, and judging by the tunes we heard played live, it is DEFINITELY a must have in your permanent rotation.
Ralston Bowles opened the show. Apparently he is “the Johnny Cash of Grand Rapids”. This is what I have read, anyways.
Red Sea Pedestrians put on a crazy set in the 2nd slot. Kind of a bar mitsvah-polka psychedelic swirl that inspired the crowd to get up and dance like drunken gypsies.
The band played songs by Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Patsy Cline, as well as many originals. The crowd responded well to the ix of songs.
Afterwards we met Delilah and a few of the band members. We talked about their set and the upcoming shows…what type of tunings they use …other band stuff… then it was time to head home for the night ( and process the video!). A great end to a fun night out!
