Last weekend we drove a couple of hours for a marching band competition. An important aspect of any road trip is good music. My go-to station on satellite radio is Alt Nation, channel 36. They were playing sets from the Austin City Limits Music Fest and I heard the Strumbellas play live. I already love their song, “Spirits,” but haven’t taken the time to listen to anything else from them. I was impressed with what I heard and have been listening to them all week. I figure if they were entertaining enough on the radio, imagine how good they must be in person! I may have to go see them in December at the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill in St. Louis. The name of the venue alone makes me want to see a concert there.
Here is a YouTube mix of their music. Aside from “Spirits,” “Shovels and Dirt” and “We Don’t Know” are my favs from the current album.
