Tupelo Honey Playlist 2/19/13

I went to see Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers at Cozmic last Wednesday night. Shows in the middle of the week are difficult in Eugene. This town has a real blue collar mentality when it comes to going out any time but the weekend. Anyway, I went to the gig expecting some great music and a pitiful audience. I got the great music, but to my pleasant surprise there wasn't a seat in the house. A Wednesday night in Eugene?

I asked around and found out that Nicki and the boys have become an internet sensation. Not from their own music but from doing covers. While driving to their next gig they've been passing the time by recording covers right in the van while bumping on down the road. Their Youtube posts have gone viral, and although its hard to explain why the videos are so entertaining, they are!

Check this out, directly behind Nicki is her husband Tim and to his right is Nicki's friend since age 6, Deren. I dare you not to smile...
