ACL Update Saturday - Part 2

Our first full concert was The Asylum Street Spankers. Great name and it fits. They are a bluegrass based band; sort of. They actually went in several directions moving from 30's swing to a medley of TV themes. But there were two very big highlights. The first was called something like Hick Cop and was a combination of a country music and rap with lots of explicit lines and parts of the theme from The Beverly Hillbillies. The second highlight was a bluegrass version of NIN's "Closer (I want to f*** you like an animal)". The intensity of the original performance was replaced by the insanity of the whole band making animal sounds instead of singing the word "animal". I was laughing so hard I almost fell over.
