The Dustbowl Revival

Folk/Bluegrass
Please note: This event has already occurred.
The antidote to the whole Lumineers/Mumford and Sons folk-schlock scene: The Dustbowl Revival. Like some weird jam session between the Squirrel Nut Zippers and Old Crow Medicine Show, California's Dustbowl Revival swings between Appalachia, old-timey country and hot New Orleans-style jazz, with accordions wheezing, slide guitars slithering and horns jumping in and out. Sure, it can be precious at times (I can't stop myself from fast-forwarding past the version of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" that leads into the new album "Carry Me Home") but the infectious "Riverboat Queen" and the fiddle-driven bluegrass rave-up "New River Train" more than make up for it. The sartorially appropriate Sweater Set and Ugly Purple Sweater open at DC9.
