Wisconsin-based Horseshoes & Hand Grenades are the definition of a progressive high-energy string band. Once this quintet puts their foot on the gas, they rarely take it off, making for one hell of a foot-stomping, barley-laced, ale-and-whiskey drinking, hootin’ and hollerin’ party of epic proportions. With three proper studio albums under their belts, the gentlemen of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades have made it quite clear that there is no turning back and The Way is forward and upward on their quest.
The group will bring their version of Appalachia to New York City this coming Friday, April 28th at American Beauty, along with recently announced support from The Falco Brothers, featuring Andy Falco of The Infamous Stringdusters, who will unplug and perform a special acoustic trio set (purchase tickets here). To go along with the announcement of The Falco Brothers, the band has premiered a video for their recent cover of the classic Talking Heads song “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody),” directed by Colin Sytsma of Wood Grain Media, from their recent show at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in March.
The Falco Brothers, products of Long Island, have been playing American Roots music together for over fifteen years. With brothers Tom on acoustic guitar, Andy on guitar and mandolin (who is also a member of national touring act The Infamous Stringdusters), and Patrick on upright bass, the group’s special acoustic trio set on this particular evening will feature a number of original songs as well as some well-known covers thrown in for good measure.
