FILTHY STILL (New England)
Folk-punk-bluegrass with a dash of classic rock that'll leave you feeling like you've danced a jig, reveled into that good night, and been knocked in the head with a hammer--that's Filthy Still. Formed in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island back in 2010, Filthy Still have since released two albums of Americana mayhem.
HAY BABES (Oakland)
With their signature blend of old time, country, and bluegrass tunes, Hay Babes burst onto the Bay Area music scene in 2013. Boasting the double threat of Wendy and Megan at the helm, and backed by a rhythm section of two semi-vagrant callus-handed Buckaroos, Hay Babes will knock politely on the door of your heart then pull a Winchester and force entry the moment you crack the door.
