Deep Blues

Hey, hey all y'all.

Thanks for votin' in the poll. We'll hit up your poll winners later this week, but we've got a new project and passion that's gonna take up some space over the next few months. Let's say we'll alternate between regular posts and pimpin' posts. That way you're not overwhelmed.

There's a super duper festival coming up this summer that any fan of this here blog should circle their calendars for. It's called The Deep Blues Festival, it's in Minneapolis MN, and it features a lineup that's pure nirvana to fans of real, dirt-crusted gutbucket Blues and Trash-Blues. You can find the god-like lineup here, a blog dedicated to the festival here, and a myspace page here. We plead with you to visit these sites regularly.

I'm gonna be there, oh hell yes, and hopefully will have some news regarding my presence within the next few months. So get your travel plans in order, folks.

As I said, we're going to be doing features here, sporadically, over the next few months, about as many of the artists as we can fit in.

For today's post we're just gonna throw out some tunes by some of the artists who will be there that you may already be familiar with. Fat Possum and Big Legal Mess are gonna be represented in full force, so that should tell you something about how great this event is gonna be. Screw yr pitchforks and lollapaloozas, this will be the place to be.

More indepth posts to come.

T Model Ford: Ugly Ass Grin (mp3)

Pure Country Gold: Lady Low (mp3)

Please support your local, independent, Blues festival.

Another good one, albeit a bit commercial, is the Waterfront Fest in Portland over Fourth of July. This year: Etta James, Johnny Winter, Sonny Landreth, Sharon King. I think they raise something like $75K for the local food bank, which is always cool. [Namaste|Music Junkie|Fusion 45]
