Mountain Stage News: March Live Show Announced

Tuan Lee
The Bottle Rockets return to Mountain Stage March 20 in Charleston.

Mountain Stage w/ Larry Groce has announced two live shows for March in Charleston. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of show, available today on MountainStage.org, by phone at 877-987-6487, locally at Taylor Books in downtown Charleston and also at the upcoming live shows.

On Sunday, March 13, Mountain Stage will record episode #865 at the Culture Center Theater on the State Capitol Grounds, 1900 Kanawaha Blvd., Charleston. The show (which will be heard on over 150 NPR Stations nationwide in April) will include the return of Red Baraat, a Brooklyn-based funk outfit whom NPR Music has crowned "the best party band in years." Get a taste of their groove with the band's recent KEXP performance out of Seattle.


The March 13 show will also mark the Mountain Stage debuts of NPR's favorite "Irish Punch Brothers" We Banjo 3, energetic folk-poppers Star & Micey and Minnesota jazz-blues band Davina and The Vagabonds, whose sassy, soulful sound will bring any Lake Street Dive or Alabama Shakes fan to their feet.


On Sunday, March 20, Mountain Stage will return to its home at the Culture Center Theater to record episode #866. The show will mark the eighth appearance for indie-minded roots rockers Bottle Rockets, who released their twelfth studio release South Broadway Athletic Club this past October. Hear their last performance on Mountain Stage (from July 2013!) below.

Joining them on March 20 are Cali alt-folk rockers HONEYHONEY, legendary tunesmith Marshall Crenshaw and the Drive-By Truckers' co-founder Mike Cooley.
