Live: Slaid Cleaves plays new material in Durham (Videos)

Posted by on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 12:05 PM

Last Thursday at the Casbah, Texas singer-songwriter Slaid Cleaves returned to the Triangle, accompanied by Scrappy Jud Newcomb. Cleaves has not been in the area in nearly four years, so he brought along a batch of new songs from an upcoming album titled Still Fighting The War. The title track, which you can hear below, surrounds military personnel returning home and dealing with reentry into the civilian world and the consequences of combat. The second song, "Go for the Gold," is a gospel number performed unplugged for the encore. Cleaves seemed pleased both with the sizable crowd and the sound at the venue, so we hope to see him back soon.

A single noise complaint doesn't mean that they have to leave. Central Park is not and never will be silent.

It sounds like one rotten ingredient spoiled the soup last night. I wish Batala Durham luck in obtaining a permit …
