Concert preview: Sweet Spirit

Joel Oliphint
Sweet Spirit

Sweet Spirit's Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen are in an odd but enviable position. They have two bands: A Giant Dog, which recently signed to Merge Records and released well-received punk-rock albumPile in May, and Sweet Spirit, a poppier, funkier project that toured with Spoon last year (catch A Giant Dog as part of 4th and 4th Fest this weekend). After this tour, Ellis and Cashen head to the studio to record A Giant Dog's next album before a fall tour supporting Titus Andronicus. That is, if they don't die of exhaustion first. Bloodthirsty Virgins and Montauk Trash open the show.(Safe bet)
