The Prophet is one of the best small venues in Deep Ellum. I love the atmosphere, the staff, and the shows it hosts. It was as crowded as I have ever seen it once OURS took the stage.
Their newest album Ballet the Boxer 1 was just released and they performed a lot of tracks off of it as I watched the crowd sing everything back word for word. “Pretty Pain” and “Devil” got the biggest response, but songs like “Been Down” and “Coming for You” also had everyone rocking along with Jimmy Gnecco as he used his outstanding vocals to hypnotize all the fans.
The stage setup was simple. It was just the band and their instruments. Gnecco took time in between songs to talk to the crowd. “Devil” is the most current release from the album and has a new video out that features the last footage of David Carradine. Gnecco took time to address how pleased they were to have it and how proud they were of the video.
Overall this was a solid show. Band members April, Static, Dennis Zimmer, and Chris Goodlof did a fantastic job on all the songs. The walls were shaking and it was great!
They don’t have any upcoming shows booked at the moment, but make sure and check out the “Devil” video and pickup a copy of Ballet the Boxer 1 that is out now!
