Weekly Roundup: LSD, Joseph Huber, and Lyft – Those Who Dig

April 11, 2014

In this Weekly Roundup we all get more impressed at Lake Street Dive’s success, celebrate a former .357 Stringband banjo wielding troubadour’s next release, check out some great photos from last week’s Calamity Janes show, and increase the chances of making it home safely after a night of music watching.

Lake Street Dive Sells Out 40 Consecutive Shows on Their “Bad Self Portraits” Release Tour

Because of course they did. If you don’t know about these guys you must be living under a rock. They put on one of the best live shows I have ever seen. Incredible musicianship meets an energetic and entertaining live show. Bam.

If you have yet to check out their album you can buy it on vinyl, CD, or digital here.

Joseph Huber “The Hanging Road” Cd Release Party – April 26th in Chicago

Banjo wielding, .357 Stringband alumni Joseph Huber is set to release his third solo album. His second, entitled Tongues of Fire, is a strong candidate for one my favorite albums of 2012, and I couldn’t be more excited for his third release. The new album name is The Hanging Road and will be released through Muddy Roots Music Recordings. The CD release party will be held April 26th at Reggie’s Rock Bar in Chicago as part of the 2nd annual Moonrunner’s Festival. You can preorder the vinyl album on the Muddy Roots Page. Mark this down as my most anticipated release so far in 2014.

Here is one of my favorite tracks off of his second album Tongues of Fire, appropriately entitled Tongues of Fire.

Photo Blog Post From Last Friday’s Calamity Janes, Myles Coyne, and Pay The Devil Show

Very good friend of The Dig Ellie was on location with her camera working on low-light shooting situations. She got some great shots. You can check it out on her blog. Ellie’s Photo Blog – 4/4/2014 Yield Bar.

Lyft Launches in Milwaukee

Throwing their hats into the smart phone ride sharing ring, Lyft launched in Milwaukee just yesterday. This town is notorious for the throttled taxi service and absolute disdain for public transportation, making responsible late nights more feasible. Maybe we can all enjoy an extra drink or two when going to see shows now!
