The Dear Hunter is sometimes described as Indie Rock or Emo/Progressive but if I had to sum it up….a diverse jam band you could rock out to for hours. The band kicked of their tour right here in Scottsdale, AZ before heading off to SXSW and then a nationwide tour to follow.

Opening the show was Naive Thieves a refreshing, young band from Southern California. This is their first cross-country run and you could sense a bit of nerves on stage when the band interacted with the audience.

When The Dear Hunter took the stage there was nothing said that wasn’t said through song for the first 15-20 minutes. They came out and just played song after song, they had a way of just sucking you in right away. The music they play is the type I can just listen to and get lost in.

Vocalist and songwriter Casey Crescenzo from The Dear Hunter

Vocalist and songwriter Casey Crescenzo (The Receiving End of Sirens) is the creative force behind The Dear Hunter and his passion for the music showed throughout the band’s set. He transitioned from playing guitar to keys several times throughout.

They played for at least an hour and forty minutes if not longer. Being the first stop on the North American tour (the band just played Soundwave in Australia) we were able to hear some of their new material from the new album Migrant (April 2, 2013).

The show was a great time and if The Dear Hunter is coming through your city make sure you go see them. For full tour dates click here.
