[JAMGRASS] Look, I'm normally not one to advocate for jam bands. But New Year’s Eve isn't a normal evening, and I can totally see the appeal of attending a Railroad Earth gig to celebrate the end of 2012. Playing in a panoply of string-based musical styles—bluegrass, Celtic music, traditional American folk—the New Jersey band makes the perfect soundtrack for a night of warm feelings produced by excessive whiskey drinking. And generally speaking, most bands can't reasonably stretch a set past midnight. These boys will probably keep playing well into the first hours of 2013. Plus, their banjo-and-fiddle rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" will be bitching. Don't get me wrong, this isn't where I'm spending my evening. But I won't judge if that's your plan.
