Grab your whiskey and get to the dance floor because Indy Mojo is taking over the Bluebird once again. Bluegrass is back, this time with Trampled by Turtles Thursday, February 5 (8pm, $20). A five-piece ensemble all the way from Duluth, Minn. gives you a smooth blend of bluegrass with an indie folk twist. Get your tickets soon as this show is on the verge of selling out!
What first attracted me to Trampled by Turtles (TBT) was their fast paced tempo and rasping melodies. They swoon you with their heartfelt lyrics while your toes are tapping violently to the beat. This fun loving band developed from a not-so-typical background; all band members started off in separate bands playing a variety of electronic, metal, and jam music. Slowly, one by one, they left these bands to form TBT and 10 years later they are still putting out albums and bringing in the crowd.
More recently, they were featured in July 2014 on “Late Night with David Letterman” to sing songs off their latest album, “Wild Animal”.
TBT will be on tour early spring through the summer, with several festival dates already announced including Hangout, Summer Camp, Bonnaroo and Telluride. While we all love festivals don’t miss this perfect opportunity to see them in a more intimate setting at The Bluebird. The banjo will be plucked, the guitar will be strummed, and the vocals will take you away.
