Nashville's own Escondido — who we've described as "spaghetti Western-informed breezy expanse," "sleepy ’70s desert country-rock" and David Lynch-beloved — popped into the Cone Zone last night for a performance of the tune "Cold October" from their recently released debut LP The Ghost of Escondido. The clip opens with a very brassy and Ennio Morricone-esque blast of trumpet from frontman Tyler James and concludes with frontlady Jessica Maros giving a big-ass high-kick.
Anyhow, if you look closely, you'll see another familiar Nashvillian or two in there, contributing to a tight performance of a slick, mid-tempo, Western country-rock burner. I'm mildly surprised Mr. O'Brien didn't bust out his Conando bit, seeing as how "Conando" and "Escondido" sound like a good match. But he did wear this Escondido sombrero and refer to the band's performance as both "great" and "fantastic." So that's good. Have a look above.
