I was talking with a friend about the best LIVE shows I had ever seen. Eric Church came up. I was trying to explain how you become so locked in, captivated, that it feels like you don’t blink for the entire set. I said “your beer turns warm.” What I meant was simply that you become so enthralled in the performance, you forget about what’s going on around you – you even forget you’re holding a drink. Next thing you know, you haven’t taken a sip and that beer lost its chill.
The following six artists do just that. They captivate you. They make you not want to blink. That beer goes warm.
6. Brothers Osborne
