Jose Gonzalez @ Lincoln Hall 4/15/2015
Jose Gonzalez

González's songs really push some powerful and thought provoking images that he and his band performed with unbelievable poise. With "Killing for Love" González explores the dark and scary territory that love can fall into, urging to question the length of ones desires. Questioning continues on in "What Will", where González pushes away ideas of status quo and dogma with the suggestion action. Under any other hand these songs could seem heavy handed, but González and his band bring in subtleties with their instrumentation that soft the message while still letting it flow through. - [Gapers Block]
