Nearly a month ago, it began storming on a Tuesday (it’s been doing so in Texas ever since to think of it). The wind began to howl. It began drizzling rain across the Hub. The sun shined in the distance. Rain turned to hail for a brief period. Charlie Stout chased tornadoes a county over. 

It looked pretty grim for the fifth of May. Pretty shitty for an album release that was originally planned to utilize both stages–the main indoor and one on the back patio–at 1806 Buddy Holly and have some twenty something songwriters and bands play all day long. It wasn’t in the cards.

Still, in typical Dalton Domino fashion, the rising Lubbock songwriter made the best of it. The weather let up enough. The power stayed on. People flocked. Pinatas busted at the seams with various ping-pong balls. Don’t you threaten me with a good time.

What was billed as Dalton’s Drink de Cinco, really served as Domino and The Front Porch Family Band’s debut album release show with a heavy hitting list of Domino & FPFB contemporaries and friends: Dave Martinez, Austin McManus, Buck Fuffalo, Kody West, Jon Young, Brandon Steadman, Randall King, The Castles, Casey Berry, Parker McCollum, No Dry County, Dix Hat Band, Hunter Hutchinson, Dolly Shine, and Larry Joe Taylor.
