Went out last night to The Ranch honky-tonk in San Miguel Ca. There was a Johnny Cash cover band playing "Cashed Out". Good to have something happening in our neck of the woods. The real surprise of the evening though, was the band that opened up the show. The Blackwater Union, a group of local youngsters with their heads in the right place. Deeply rooted in traditional american labor party/ folksy / bluegrassy goodness. Not to mention, after their set, we talked to the band for a bit, and they were very humble and nice. I will search these guys out for further shows. A very nice stumble across... Check them out at the above link.
