Stage presence counts in rock'n'roll, and after watching the Ballroom Thieves play for a couple of songs, you'll be rooting for them, too. I was first introduced to them during last year's Campfire Music Festival, which consisted largely of regional bands that I hadn't heard of (in addition to, unfortunately, the Delta Spirit. I will use this blog as a platform to shit all over them.) I'll forgive the Thieves for their Boston roots, though. The trio took any and every opportunity to play music -- whether it was on the formal stage or late-night campfires. The joy they take in playing music -- with each other and in general -- is spellbinding.
