Friday June 28th at 4:00-8pm Green River Festival presents Birds of Chicago
w/ DJ Hot Foot
Birds of Chicago: Led by JT Nero and Allison Russell, Birds of Chicago are known for their seamless combination of rock n roll meets “near perfect Americana” (No Depression). Their most recent album, Love in Wartime is a rock and roll suite with impressive cinematic sweep. NPR praised, “Nero and Russell play folk-rock with impressionistic flourishes and gospel warmth, lent unexpected extravagance by Russell’s singing…” Co-produced by Nero and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), it evokes epic efforts of the 60’s and 70’s, with love as the undeniable through-line, and finds Nero and Russell continuing to create joyously urgent rock songs with deep lyricism, gut-punch singing and fevered musicality.
DJ Hot Foot spins rockabilly and rhythm ‘n blues at 45rpm! From original 50s artists to current revivalists I play the cuts to make you bop, jive, and stroll!
