Okay... I've heard this band's name around the block quite a few times. But until last night, I hadn't actually heard their music or seen them live.

Oh. My. Gosh. 

How I haven't heard them before, I don't know. But Shane Smith and the Saints are possibly my new favorite band on the TX scene. They are the perfect combination of The Wheeler Brothers and Flogging Molly. For those of you who don't know those bands either, think Irish folk meets Indy rock, with a taste of country. Pure awesomeness. Oh, and to top it off? They opened with a fiddle lick from Braveheart. They know how to melt a girl's heart.

If you haven't seen them live, I highly encourage it. It's a great show with badass music. Check 'em out!
