Ahhhh… spring. That much closer to summer and road trip season. So, we have three excellent road trip bands lined up for you this week. They’re from all over the country, too. Of course, we’ll tell you where to see them live in the coming days and months, as well as play a round of “Screw the Scalpers,” where we tell you about some shows sure to sell out and when they go on sale – so you don’t get screwed.
A big thanks this week to Jon, a Sound Citizen reader who suggested Root Hog, and to everyone who subscribed this week to Sound Citizen Radio on iTunes. Keep it going – the more we spread the love, the closer these bands get to living the rock and roll dream.
