Hoots and Hellmouth

Hoots and Hellmouth
is swooping down south from Philadelphia this week. They describe their music as indie/roots/experimental, but I think artist/musician TJ Black put it best when he called them “thrash bluegrass.” I’d say that the red-headed guy definitely channels some old bluesman business, too. What you can see in this picture is that there is no percussionist for the band. What you can’t see is that they stand on these old sagging platforms, plug a tambourine into an amp and put it on the platform, and then just stomp. Be sure to catch them if you’re in:
