These guys opened strong for a really good show by Steve Winwood last year at the Fillmore. Winwood's voice is still one of the great ones, up there with Jerry, Bob, Greg Allman, Muddy, Toots, Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Lennon, Jagger and Ronnie Van Zant. And the guy is just so musical, long guitar solos that never ran out of ideas and of course his keyboard playing has always been among the best. "Can't Find My Way Home" was fucking amazing. But I was writing on new bands so...The Wood Brothers opened and played original tunes with a strong American roots feeling. I would definitely see them again. http://www.thewoodbros.com
is there anywhere in this forum to look for rideshares for bands coming around?

A small indie label started by Adam Moult of the Nashville, TN band Bad Cop has VERY quickly grown into a staple record label of a lot of the underground punk/rock world in that state. Bad Cop is, of course, on the label, but you can also find releases from Useless Eaters, Turbo Fruits, Natural Child, Ranch Ghost, Ghost Dance, Majestico, Little Viking, Western Medication, Promised Land, Fancytramp, Magic Milk, and more. Check out Jeffery Drag Records, indie music released by an indie label.
Alabama Shakes are blowing me away right now.
let me look into this.
Didn't know where to put this question, and I apologize if it has been asked and answered elsewhere, but I didn't see a thread for JGB. Not in GD section. Not in this one. Ratdog. Phil & Friends. Donna Jean. Mickey. But no JGB? Seems rather curious, to say the least. They are still putting out releases, Garcia Live, for instance, and I just wandered over to see if there was opinion on it, and no thread for JGB. What's up?
I agree with Marye that this is well worth listening to. Even better is the Barnes and Noble exclusive edition which features 6 demos on a second CD. Three of the six feature on the regular album, three do not. These are not rough but polished demos. I actually prefer the demo disc to the regular disc (don't tell Boz !).
