So, I had hoped to unleash the second installment of my still as yet unnamed podcast series today, this time featuring Vermont native Sarah Cronin from Drug Rug. The idea was to do a quick Q&A about the band and then spin a couple of tunes from their excellent new album, Paint the Fence Invisible. Sounds pretty sweet, right? Right.
However, Drug Rug are increasingly becoming kind of a big deal. As such, our schedules never quite lined up. We had to reschedule several times, the last time around because the band was slated — are you ready? — to tape a Daytrotter session when we were supposed to talk. If my humble little podcast had to be bumped, at least it was bumped in style. C'est la vie.
Anyway, tonight Drug Rug is playing Higher Ground with Portugal. The Man and Hockey, who are both pretty rad. Here's a vid from a recent DR show in Cleveland. No, not as cool as podcast. But cool nonetheless.
And here's a new-ish vid from the aforementioned radness that is Portugal. The Man. Enjoy!
