Opening for punk bands.

Posted by Dave Connelly on Tuesday, February 3, 2009

I was just asked to open for a couple of punk bands on Feb. 19th at Two Boots in Bridgeport CT. King Sexy and the Baghdaddios. Totally random, but I'm gonna rock out.

Lets see... should I open with Arkansas Traveler or Foggy Mt.?
Aw shoot.. I'll just wing it.

Sometimes those are the funest shows because it`s different we have done this a few times and has gone over well. Alot of old school punk rockers now are into and playing bluegrass, alt-country, some have said certain styles of bluegrass is the new punk. Also you don`t get the typical I`m holier than thou pickers who only want it one way, and if you don`t fit quite into the mould you just ain`t any good.  These cross over gigs open the eyes of the young uns too and expose them to something awesome, and hard driving bluegrass is as fast and furious as any punk song. We have actualy added a couple of punk songs to our repitoire, played bluegrass style of course and they love it!!
