I didn’t wait until lunchtime for this bike ride because today I rode to Farragut Square Park (MAP) to see The Muddy Crows, one of D.C.’s best local original bands, who were performing as part of the Spring Concert Series sponsored by Fox 5, the local TV affiliate. It was an unseasonably cold morning with occasional drops of rain drizzling down from a sky that couldn’t seem to make up its mind what it wanted to do. But even that couldn’t put a damper on the event. The Americana/Roots-Rock group played a variety of covers, but it was their original songs like Old Fashioned Love and One of Those Days, as well as some of the songs from the group’s recently-released album such as Warm and Fuzzy and Jezebel, that really made the show. Unfortunately, the concert had to come to an end. So it’s too late for anyone who wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to be there. I took a couple of videos of the #Fox5Rocks performance (see below) so you could get a taste of their music, which is available through their website and on iTunes. But to fully enjoy The Muddy Crows, I recommend seeing them live. And if the nearly 100 shows they put on last year is any indication, the prolific performers will providing many more opportunities in the near future. And now that they are back from their recently-completed first European tour, which included 22 shows over 24 days across 17 cities and multiple countries, I’m hoping many of those upcoming shows will be here in the D.C. area.
