Doug Otto and the Getaways at Dakota

We know you’ve been searching around town for a show featuring an electric lap steel guitar, so we’ve hooked it up for you. Doug Otto and crew performing their melodic country songs at the Dakota and they’ll be doing it with an electric lap steel guitar! Adding just the right amount of sorrowful twang, lap steel guitars can be made to do pretty much anything. We like what Getaways member Shane Akers does with it. Slide and steel guitars are hallmarks of the Delta blues style, one of the earliest incarnations of the blues. Though these guys proudly place their album in the local section of Electric Fetus, they’ve still got a feel for the Delta.

Playing everything from gospel to country to blues, Doug Otto and the Getaways have a smooth, steady sound, gentle enough to pull some heartstrings and strong enough to get some feet tapping. Get your boots on and have yourself a little Mississippi vacation. 4/6. 11 p.m. $5.
