Local Bands of the Week February 16-23

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

The most-played local bands on KWUR this week were:

  1. Cassie Morgan & the Lonely Pine
  2. Grace Basement
  3. Spelling Bee
  4. Gentleman Auction House
  5. The Hooten Hallers

And while I'm doling out well-earned props, I'd like to call attention to acclaimed blues trio Rum Drum Ramblers, who are playing a record release show at Off Broadway on Thursday, February 24 with Carbondale's own punkgrass outfit Whistle Pigs. Fans of Pokey LaFarge will be especially interested in checking out the show–Rum Drum and the South City Three share harmonica and bass talent. You should go!
