lauren mann and the fairly odd folk
check out this band i saw opening for rusted root last night. they're from calgary. i can't find a youtube video that does them justice, but this gives you an idea. they were FABULOUS!!! they basically looked like appalachian punks-- very folksy country with tattoos and piercings. the drummer DID NOT SIT and danced so hard while playing i have no idea how he kept the beat and didn't fall over. they take turns playing various instruments, like a merry go round. they are fantastic live-- vibrant, full of sound, driving beats. earthy. moving. small time, folksy, crafty merch table-- handmade sign with felt cut out trees. i highly highly highly recommend catching them if they ever come within a 60 mile radius of your residence. they should definitely be getting big. HERE is a link to their website.
