While I was away in the UK on vacation, Secret Stages announced another batch of 10 acts set to perform at the festival later this summer. They're doing that each Tuesday until the entire list of acts is announced, to build anticipation I suppose. Anyway, 10 at a time is fine with me because I've been playing catch up around here at Aimless Skylarking the last few days, but I was able to skim over the list so I could start developing at least a rough itinerary for the 2 day fest. And of course, share anything interesting here. One artist in particular caught my ear, and I've returned to his one song many times in the past few days. Captain Kudzu's 'Porch' is an infectious kicked back toe-tapper, and I'm definitely going to see their performance. Stream 'Porch' below.
Captain Kudzu started out as Jackson Gafford's one man show but has grown to a full band with friends Abby Anderson (drums) and Shannon Wrenn (bass, vocals) joining in. They're from Opelika, AL, and they're currently working on a full length album.
