Folk rock and the open road go together like blues and whiskey, so I think it's fitting that this weeks Tuesday Double Feature spotlights two up and coming leaders of the genre, with videos that show life on tour.
These are musicians on the rise so garb hold now. Like a rail car through the switching yard, they are traveling a safe speeds but soon they'll accelerate beyond catching so reach out and take hold.
Joe Pug - Speak Plainly Diana
Possessed with the same rambling American spirit as Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, Job Pug's music is rich with the salt and soil that made this country. A bold storyteller, it's hard not to get lost in his lyrics. Pug will be returning to Portland Friday September 9th to play the Aladdin Theater for Music Fest Northwest. Make sure you grab your wrist band or tickets now.
The Parson Red Heads - Seven Years Ago
New darlings of the vibrant folk-rock scene of Portland Oregon, The Parson Red Head's music is an oddly beautiful mix of 70's musical influences as broad as Neil Young and mellow Tom Petty and The Heartbreaks. Celebrating the recent release of their latest album Yearling the band is on tour, so keep an eye out for them playing in a town near you.
