Tonight At Anthology: The Barr Brothers

The Barr Brothers recently released a self-titled album on Secret City Records and if you haven't had the chance to pick it up (or download, as you probably do), you're missing out on quite the gem of the kind of folky rock that makes this blogger swoon. I don't know who you trust as your music filters or tastemakers, but when a band gets a video premiere on NPR, or is gushed about on My Old Kentucky Blog, WXPN and the like, and credible reviewers describe the band as a cross of the Avett Brothers and Blitzen Trapper, I can be  fairly certain that I'm gonna trust those sources and dig the band. The Barr Brothers are playing tonight at Anthology and as far as I know there are still tickets available. Don't trust me on this one, trust NPR.
