Dry The River
with guests:
The Ferocious Few

They might look like another 21st century folk group, with their beards and acoustic instrumentation (even a violin), but Dry the River describes their music as "folky gospel music played by a post-punk band." Between their diverse list of influences: Leonard Cohen, Fugazi, Neil Young, Arlo Guthrie, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bruce Springsteen, Devendra Banhart - and their backgrounds in hardcore and emo bands, they stake out territory that is truly their own. They are, "the folk band that thinks it's a rock band." Their first EP, "Weights & Meaures" went to Number One on the NME chart and when recording their full-length in the U.S., Dry The River, staying true their punk roots, continuously played New York clubs, packing houses at venues like Pianos and The Knitting Factory. With "Shallow Bed," it's Dry the River's moment to step out on their own. Set aside your assumptions, labels, expectations. Brace yourself.
