I see all the Taylor Swift and Jay-Z love in here. Now, let me ask this - anyone else a fan of alternative bluegrass?
I don't know about alternative bluegrass, but I like some alt-country. Stuff like Lucero, Rocky Votolato, The Everybodyfields, The Dutchess and the Duke, The Avett Brothers...do you know any of them? The Avett Brothers might be close to bluegrass, but I don't really know what I'm talking about. They have a banjo and an upright bass though.
I'm also into a lot of punk and indie, so I'm hoping to catch a bunch of good shows at the Black Cat.
I like alt-country too. I'll have to check some out the bands you mentioned. The Avett Bros are great. Other Alt Bluegrass I like includes Nickel Creek, Crooked Still, Sarah Jarosz,Wailing Jennys, the Boston Boys. Also some folkier stuff like The Be Good Tanyas and grassier stuff like the Steeldrivers. Do you like psychobilly? I used to go to a lot of psychobilly shows and would be happy to do so again.
Alt bluegrass as in Nickel Creek, Chris Thile, Punch Brothers, Avett Bros, etc?
If so, then a big yes.
Absolutely! Do you know Mountain Heart? I saw them live last year and they're amazing. And yes, absolutely no Nickelback .
