* Depending on what kind of response I get from this, I may post a new Artist of the Day each day. I love sharing new music with new people and I hope you all enjoy discovering it.

I loved Rollin' and tumblin'. You can't go wrong with booze soaked blues though.
They're a cool band man i'll keep a ear out for them now.

These guys are great. They're from here in Fort Wayne so, fortunately for me, I get to see them quite a bit. Keep an eye out on those tour dates. They'll be coming to your neck of the woods eventually.

If anyone is close to Fort Wayne, you should try to get here on 3/22/08. LLC is playing a gig with The Pack A.D. (from Canada) and Gravelroad (Seattle, WA). This show is going to be OFF THE HOOK. Make plans now.

Though I'm not exactly sure where in Canada or when they'll be up that way, I'm almost positive that LLC will visit Canada sometime in the near future. I've talked with Brenn (the drummer) and if I remember correctly, he said something about trying to get up that way. I'll let you know if I hear anything.

I know they're going to be doing some shows in the UK later this year, though, for all of you people that live across the pond.

Like I said in the Bob Log III thread, the Deep Blues Festival will take place in Lake Elmo, Minnesota in mid-July. LLC will be tearing the place apart along with over 40 others bands. Check it out if you can!

Just to clarify...Rollin' & Tumblin' IS NOT an LLC original. It's more of a traditional tune.
