This was an evening of great southern song writers at the High Noon Saloon. Dawn Landes started off the evening with her indie folk melodies which were beautiful, simplistic and sweet. Later on, Will Hoge and his band the blew the roof off the place. With their high energy and soulful blend of rock, blues and country, Will's voice carried the High Noon down through the deep south. Jason Isbell + The 400 Unit made their third appearance to the Madison area and last night performance was the standout. Isbell pulled from the Drive-By Truckers catalog as well as his own. He even ran through a great version of Dylan's "Man in Me" thrown in for good measure.
