So rarely am I out in front of a band that is on the rise. Usually, I find out about great music shortly after the band breaks up, or someone vital to the sound dies, or goes to prison, or abandons the deal for a solo gig. It's almost always over before I find out it even happened.
This time, though, I'm out in front of the fame, or some of the fame anyway, but just barely. In about a year, when we're all rocking out to The Will Overman Band on our way back from the mountains on a Sunday afternoon, all sunshine and dirt and post ride buzz, I'll look over at you from shotgun (you'll be driving because i'm extremely drunk after consuming two entire bud lite limes) and swear I knew all about these guys and blah blah blah before they were big.
For a pittance, FOR FREE technically, on this Saturday eve, you too can be privy to the foresight and catch these guys in Afton at 530 PM. Or make a difference for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Or just go and drink something slightly more socially acceptable than BLL.
As one youtube commenter so aptly put it - "This man has Jesus in his Vocal Chords."
Last but not least - and all the bike content I can muster today - THIS JUST IN:
West Virginia kicks ass.
Like, literally. It will literally kick your ass.
For sale: pelican cooler. Slightly used. Seller recommends you wash it before using it, but hey, you do you.
Freedom, dirt, beer, and blood. You know what to do with it.
Up, up, up.
