Video: Dexter Romweber and John Howie meet a meager Durham crowd

Posted by on Fri, Feb 24, 2012 at 6:32 PM

Thursday night at Durham's Casbah, as the natives watched the Blue Devils beat the Seminoles in Tallahassee, a very modest crowd turned out for the double bill of Dexter Romweber and John Howie, despite a cheap $7 cover. It's hard to believe that two artists who tour both domestically and internationally to large crowds and rave reviews sometimes do not receive the same love from folks in the Triangle. Granted they both play a fair amount in the area, but, after having seen both a good deal recently, it seems clear that their local reception is nowhere near where it belongs.

Both have contributed so much over the years while representing the area. But they don't seem to care about crowd size or the reaction they receive, so why should I? Well, beause it just ain't right.




Also, confidential to young local musicians playing rock ’n’ roll or country: The next time these two play out, show up. Take notes.
