Delta Spirit at the Hype Hotel

Thanks to Delta Spirit, I left the Hype Hotel one blissed out hot and happy mess.
 

Delta Spirit headlined the Conflict Of Interest showcase with a late night set at The Hype Hotel Tuesday, 13 March. The California five-piece stormed the stage at 1AM and played an energetic 45 minute set, spurring explosive energy amongst badge and wristband holders. Drinks flew and fists pumped as Delta Spirit rocked out old favorites mixed with new cuts off their brand new, self-titled album coincidentally released the same day.

They tore up the stage with the romantic “Bushwick Blues” and raised hell with the anthematic “People C’Mon”. Thanks to an enthusiastic audience, Texas humidity and Delta Spirit’s heart-wrenching poetic finesse, I left The Hype Hotel one blissed out hot and happy mess.
