WMSE’s favorite streetgrass band is set to stir up some dust and ruffle some feathers on Jonny Z’s Chicken Shack tomorrow, gearing up to play Turner Hall at turbo speed this weekend. The .357 String Band, straight off the tour boat from Europe (where they shared the stage with The Exploited for Speedfest), hits their home turf again hard, playing this Saturday, February 5th at the Turner Hall Ballroom [1032 N. 4th St.]; this particular show sees the energetic punked-up bluegrass band playing with a couple of their local band pals, Zebras and The Fatty Acids.
Since we last checked in with .357, they’ve not only been busy booking European tours and playing cross-country, but cooking up some new t-shirts and being proud of banjo player, Joseph Huber’s new solo album, Bury Me Where I Fall. The band is also looking ahead to playing the annual “Swamp ‘n Grass” festival in Elkhart Lake on Friday, February 11th.
Tune into 91.7 FM WMSE tomorrow at 11 a.m. to hear live music from .357 String Band as they play the WMSE studios. Listen on your radio dial, stream online at WMSE.org or check back in the WMSE archives.
