Pert' Near Sandstone
Pert' Near Sandstone with special guest Blue Turtle Seduction.
Pert' Near Sandstone is a hard-driving stringband from Minneapolis and St. Paul. Gathered round an old-timey microphone, the boys play well-crafted original stringband material, as well as being purveyors of many songs from the old-time and bluegrass traditions. They are a riot to see liveÂthis ainÂt no shirt and tie bluegrass musicÂthis is high-octane, gritty, stringband music thatÂs sure to get you outta your seat and keep you dancing all nightÂ With the release of their newest album, ÂUp and Down the RiverÂ the boys are continuing to take their music out on the rivers and roads of the country as a part of the revitalization of the American stringband tradition.
Blue Turtle Seduction
When Blue Turtle Seduction played their first show in 2001 it was... well... rough around the edges, sloppy, chaotic, and ... one hell of a great time. From the beginning there was a raw and original sound, a clear and intense vibe, and the energy was through the roof.
It was the rebellious outdoor spirit of South Lake Tahoe, CA (work hard, play harder) wrapped into electric guitar and mandolin; harmonica, harmonies, and adrenaline; drums, bass, and violin.
Fast forward to 2007 and find a band that dedicated itself to practice and playing as many shows as possible to polish that rough sound into something that has been winning fans over night after night from small town to big city, from Hawaii to New York City, and from dive bar to famous theaters all while marching to beat of their own drummer.
And while the big question spreads from mouth to mouth, "What kind of music is it?!" The band and fans alike scratch their head and offer, "Well its jam-newgrass?, how about gypsy rock?, no its Duran Duran meets String Cheese Incident, meets the Clash ... no its not, its Blind Melon meets the Samples... forget it, just come to the show! And whether its the show, the two studio CDs, or internet downloads you'll find music with meaning, lyrics that dive into two feet of fresh snow and ride the wave through the apocalypse landing on a sunny beach with tequila in hand with a spirit that kind of dares, "Go big or go home!"
