Gram National 2010
Holy, and shit. In that order. Gram National 2010 was an amazing two days of some the best music I've heard in a long time. From local acts like Jeff Byrd and the Dirty Finch to national performers like Lydia Loveless, the bill sported some amazing musicians! In between sets Dave DeLuca of the Highway Ghosts took the stage to talk about the Gram Parsons Petition, a nationwide initiative to get Gram Parsons inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Why he isn't in there already is a mystery to me, but hopefully this event pushes that one step further towards completion. Check out the Citywide Blackout Facebook page here for over 150 photos of the performers, and check back for reviews and music spotlights on the artists.
