Combining elements of bluegrass, soul, folk, and gospel, the Tumbleweed Wanderers travel from genre to genre like the twists and turns of Highway 1. These days though, they’re all about the rock, as their new live video for ‘Bad Blood’ illustrates. Complete with a rotating cast of background singers and rotating musicians, this band will impress you every chance they get.
Catch ‘em at the Independent tonight for their first headlining Bay Area show of 2015, where they will play a ton of songs from their soon-to-be-released sophomore album (coming out this Spring). This will also be drummer Daniel Blum’s final show with the band, so let’s send him off in style. Come on out and catch one of the finest five pieces to come out of the Bay Area in recent memory. And I’m not just buttering them up because they’re friends of mine. No fooling folks – this music churns itself.
Local bosses City Tribe open up the show.
