Hot Buttered Rum never lived up to their potential. I used to be really into them not so much anymore. Yonder is very good. Jury is out yet on Cornmeal. Greensky has arrived. So have Infamous Stringdusters.
you're becoming the pitchfork of bluegrass music.

Trampled By Turtles is no longer smaller, which I was shocked by. Went and saw them at the Westcott on a week night a few weeks ago. The place was packed almost to capacity. They brought in about 600 people. More than both Yonder and Railroad drew there on weekends in the past. They weren't too impressive though and played a 1 hour set and a 15 min encore. Definitely not worth $20. Cool to see Driftwood getting love in this thread, they're an upstate NY band and while I've never seen them yet, our band is playing a show with them at the end of the month so I will most definitely check them out!
yeah of any of the up and coming bluegrass bands Railroad Earth and Cornmeal will continue to gain steam. of the smaller bands Trampled seems to be getting the most hype these days. OK gets out of bluegrass thread before all street cred is lost.
