A big show tomorrow, with Blitzen Trapper, Dawes and The Belle Brigade over at the Beachland Ballroom tomorrow night… I guess it's a co-headliner with Dawes, but I think you can see where my alliances lie… and The Belle Brigade is nothing to sneeze at. Also an AMAZING pre-show / in-store performance for Blitzen Trapper at Music Saves (@ 6:30pm)!!!!!
Check out a recent performance by Blitzen Trapper on Jimmy Fallon (not seriously, that's just the lingo)

Blitzen Trapper: At Home On The Highway : NPR
"October 20, 2011 Blitzen Trapper is duly renowned for its sense of adventure. The Portland, Ore., group is nominally a country or folk band, complete with the requisite drawl from singer Eric Earley, pedal-steel guitar and golden harmonies. But that twang is accompanied by spacey keyboards, prog-rock guitar solos and a healthy dose of experimentation. Since 2007's breakthrough Wild Mountain Nation, each Blitzen Trapper album has been exciting and surprising, even as the group has toned down some of its past eccentricities."
