Song: Summertime (2013)
Artist: Billy Strings & Marcus King
Album: Rock of Ages
It may not be summertime anymore, but it high key felt like it today and...oh, my, God, I'm fucking blogging about the weather. *Johnny Cash voice* What have I become?
I'm not gonna act like I'm Mr. Bluegrass, but my roommate showed me Billy Strings & Marcus King like a year ago, and they're incredible. Both are staples of our youtube n' doob sessions. These gents epitomize cool, Marcus King looks like Landry Clarke moved to Austin after graduation but can still flood any dive bar below the Mason-Dixie line in 30 seconds.
Don't get me wrong, Jazzfest was sick, but I wish I went to Folkfest to see these two. I didn't realize until like days before when ub** passengers told me. Whatever, it saved me like a grand, and I got to drive past Nathaniel Rateliff twice on Memorial Blvd. It's basically the same thing.
