In a shocking report, the Surgeon General just revealed that Americans aren’t getting enough rowdy folk in their diets. If you’re among the folk-deficient, bleary-eyed masses, look no further than Monday’s Roadside Graves show at West Coast Tavern to get your life back on track. (NOTE: The show was originally to be held at the Tin Can Alehouse, but was canceled. Thanks to SD Dialed In, the show has found a new home at West Coast Tavern.)
I can’t think of a better way to start your week than experiencing Roadside Graves’ joyous, knee-slapping live set. The band is currently touring in support of the critically acclaimed EP, You Won’t Be Happy With Me, out now on Autumn Tone Records.
When I asked my friend Alyssa at Team Clermont to describe the band’s sound, she had this to say:
It’s music that makes me want to stomp and clap and hug my dad and thank him for working on the Ford motor line and 25 years of Army service. It always makes me want to raise my beer high in the air, and buy a round.
Since the recent Surgeon General report also noted that most Americans haven’t hugged their dads lately, you definitely don’t want to miss Monday’s show. To help get you excited, we’ve got some free MP3s, the video for “Liv Tyler,” and the rest of Roadside Graves’ tour dates below.
