Dawes stopped by The Current studios for an impromptu interview and in-studio session during their time off between two sold out First Avenue shows.

Barb Abney and the Los Angeles based band talked about Minneapolis, opening for Bob Dylan, collaborating with Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty, and as a special treat, they played a live acoustic version of "Most People."

Nate Ryan of Minnesota Public Radio recorded a snippet of their session.

Dawes plays their second night of sold out First Avenue shows with openers Shovels & Rope and Paul Spring tonight.

Songs performed:
