Venice (CA) Americana roots music collective whose music blends bluegrass, jug band music, and western swing. "The free-thinking local collective Dustbowl Revival's upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear," says an LA Weekly reviewer. Their music has evolved in a roots rock direction, and American Songwriter finds their latest, Is It You, Is It Me, "ensconced in a cleaner and expanded, if still slightly retro, pop sound that recalls early Buckingham/Nicks Fleetwood Mac, especially through the vocals of front people/co-founders Zach Lupetin and Liz Beebe." The Americana duo Smooth Hound Smith opens.
