Video: GIVERS Spoof The Wonder Years

Tonight, GIVERS will hit Indianapolis as support for Dr. Dog. The two bands will take the stage at Deluxe, a new venue within The Old National Centre. Yesterday, GIVERS released a video featuring some footage from their current tour. The video, that you can find below, has been cleverly edited to mimic the legendary intro to television’s The Wonder Years. Take a trip down memory lane to the land of Kevin Arnold and Whinnie Cooper.

Tonight’s show is one of my most anticipated of the spring. Dr. Dog’s new album Be the Void kicks some serious ass. It has been a few since I have seen Philly’s finest, and am expecting big things. GIVERS debut release was one that I latched on to in 2011 (See: Review). We were offered ample live footage from a variety of video blogs last year, which leads me to believe that they will be even better in person. There are still tickets available for tonight’s show. Grab yours via MOKB Presents. This ain’t one you will want to miss.

Video: Hogslop String Band “Cumberland Gap”

The work week is all down hill from here folks. This is the best video you will see all week. Fuck it. It’s Monday, and we all need a bit of joy in our life. I give you Nashville, TN’s Hogslop String band. This 7-piece, traditional outfit began as an impromptu square dance band back in 2009. The seven members, who originate from all over the country, quickly gained a loyal regional following. They are currently on tour with Annie Williams, whose Live & Reel session was featured in a recent post. Watch below, as Hogslop gives new meaning to the term “driving music.” This is just entirely too much fun. I believe Williams is riding shotgun as the band offers a rollicking version of “Cumberland Gap” from their 2010 debut Hogslop String Band, Vol. 1. Visit their website where, for a limited time, their two albums are available for FREE. With inspiration like this, you’ll be ditching work for a road trip by lunch time.
