Delta Spirit In Concert

Delta Spirit packed the house at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. (WXPN)

When Delta Spirit moved across the country from San Diego to Brooklyn, the band left its roots-rock reputation behind. The "new" Delta Spirit still overflows with energy, but there's nothing acoustic or folksy about the group's new self-titled album, which came out March 13. Guitars once strummed are run through effects pedals, while the fabled trash-can percussion of 2008's Ode to Sunshine has been replaced by a streamlined, uptempo backbeat.

Check out the band's new sound during a live concert webcast from Philadelphia's Union Transfer, brought to you by WXPN. Return to this page at noon ET Friday to hear the show as it happens.
