A few nights ago I went to see a few bands I had never heard of, and we’re a bit different than what I would normally listen to. They were a mixture of bluegrass, rock and indie, and they were amazing. The first band, The North Country (check them out!!), was my favorite, and the drummer in the second band was radiating energy. My advice… explore the local music scene and step out of your normal boundaries. Your ears just may end up thanking you. Plus dive bars that are only illuminated by red ceiling lighting, twinkling blue Christmas lights, and have walls of brick and stages upstairs are a must. Wonderful night with wonderful company.
