It’s been too long since I’ve seen The Autumn Hollow Band. Their set at Radio’s big anniversary show reminded me of that. There is so much heart in these songs.
So, here we are on the eve of the 2011 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble Finals. Head on down to T.T. The Bear’s Place tomorrow night and check out John Powhida International Airport, Spirit Kid and Old Jack as they vie for the coveted Rumble Tiara.
Anngelle Wood has done a remarkable job with this institution. The Rumble is a crash course in Boston’s awesomeness. The 2011 edition has been a celebration of our fantastically eclectic music scene. I haven’t been able to attend all of the shows, but I’ve enjoyed myself immensely on the nights I’ve made my way down to Central Square.
Over the next several days I’ll be posting up some pictures from this year’s festivities. The Autumn Hollow Band are already on display. Watch for photos of John Powhida International Airport, Spirit Kid, Sidewalk Driver, Mellow Bravo, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling and Cult 45.
Tomorrow night should be a lot of fun.
The Autumn Hollow Band is a band that sounds like The Band. Band band band. They have one foot in rock, one in folk and one in country. They are a three legged monster of Americana.
Speaking of feet, a good portion of the band was barefoot during their set that opened Preliminary Night #3 of the 2011 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble. As they finished their set, I ruminated that topping The Autumn Hollow Band’s set would be a challenging feat.*
*John Powhida International Airport would go on to win the night, but we’ll have more on that later.
