There’s a dang good reason that Dustbowl Revival was declared L.A. Weekly’s 2013 Best Live Band, a critical nod for a raging stage act from Venice that features a super-tasty mash of bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and hot, hot swing of New Orleans. As ripped out by some of the best soloists in any band around town, Dustbowl’s savory blend of the best of Americana is even sort of scholarly, but that’d make ’em sound dried up, which they’re not. Nope, this is roots music pulled up by its roots, dusted off and flung into one very fiery stewpot.
