Bluegrass at the Scarlet Tree TONIGHT

I’m a sucker for local bluegrass bands, probably because my brother was in one (The Dustmakers). I enjoyed going to his shows…and hearing his horrible, horrible banjo jokes.

Gentlemen Buckhunters: Quite possibly the Old Spice Guys of bluegrass (judging from this picture anyway)

So when we got an email from Gentlemen Buckhunters about their show tonight near our neighborhood (The Scarlet Tree, 801 NE 65th Street, 9pm), I said I’d be happy to promote it on the Ravenna Blog.

Plus, they said they’d plug the blog from the stage! How cool is that?!

From the event’s facebook page:

This Friday, Gentlemen Buckhunters is opening a show at the Scarlet Tree. This is our second time playing at this venue, and we’re really excited to play there! We’re opening for Big Medicine. This will be a good show! Check out ours and Big Medicine online!!

Go to Gentlemen Buckhunters’ SoundCloud page to check out their sound (I’m partial to Drinking Dark Whiskey [ha ha]). They’ve also got a video teaser on facebook. To give main act The Big Medicine a listen (band members include brothers Chad and Nathan Jackson of Local 808 and Drop Six), hit their myspace page.
