Austin natives Sweet Spirit recently released their sophomore long player, "St. Mojo" (available now via Nine Mile Records) and to celebrate the ensemble, comprised of members from punk outfit A Giant Dog, hit the the road with a stop at LA hot spot The Resident on Thursday night, May 18.
Delivering a set that left everyone in the building a hot sweaty mess by night's end, Sweet Spirit thouroughly brought the house down with their unique brand of country rock that's equal parts nostalgia drenched throwback to the sounds of the 70's and gonzo performance art channeled through lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Sabrina Ellis.
