The Gourds Rock Nashville

The Gourds are often compared to The Band, which for any band, is a comparison worth having. During their recent visit to Nashville for the Americana Music Festival (they were the first band announced to play), the Vanguard recording artists delivered an impressive set at The Mercy Lounge. The Austin, Texas rock outfit, who are currently still on the road, play with a unity of purpose which stems from the fact that they’ve been touring heavily since 1998. Pick up a copy of their latest album, Old Mad Joy, here, and watch a video of the band performing the album track “Two Sparrows” below.
