Coming Soon to the Moore!
I know who these guys are, but I've never actually heard anything by them. They play roots stuff that apparently goes well on Prairie Home Companion, a show I don't listen to. Why? Because after tuning in for about five minutes, I feel like hanging myself. I don't know whether it's all that yodeling or Garrison Keillor, but that show really disturbs me. But that doesn't mean that Old Crow Medicine Show sucks. Not at all. I haven't ever heard anything by them, so I can't say. I can tell you their deep-dark secret, though: despite their roots/folk bona fides, they actually formed up in New York City. So those cowboy hats and handlebar mustaches are all, y'know, lies. What will we tell the children?
