A couple Saturdays ago a band from Pittsburgh called “Grain”:http://www.grain-music.com/ played at Common Grounds, and only a couple of people showed up. Far from being discouraged, they played a fantastic show in spite of the empty house. I wasn’t there, but the folks who work here are still talking about it. Apparently they completely rocked out. They’ve been playing the band’s self-entitled (and only) album at the Grounds today, and I was hooked even before I learned that this was That One Band from a couple weeks ago. It’s stripped down roots-rock in all its glory, with an agile guitarist and a stunning female lead vocalist. You can “buy their album”:http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/grain at the most excellent site “CD Baby”:http://www.cdbaby.com/home. While you’re there, snag yourself a copy of “Craic Wisely’s”:http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/craicwisely CD as well.
