Road Music: NC Trip Spring 2014-- Part 1

SPEED OF DARKNESS--  FLOGGING MOLLY:  Great Irish rock  The songs "Revolution" and "The Power's Out" make being a CEO akin to a bad word.  They are fully on the side of the downtrodden working middle class while the rich get richer.

"From the town of Detroit where my job is secure, yeah, secure in the fact that it's gone for sure, yeah!  So I'll scrimp and I'll scrape at this pension I've made, so it should be gone by the end of the day."

MAGPIE AND THE DANDELION--  AVETT BROTHERS:  One of those albums you like a few songs, the real kickers,  the first time through, but the more you listen, the more you like.  They just grow on you.

"Open Ended Life" starts off slow, but really kicks into gear.  Their big hit from the album is "Another Is Waiting."

The group hails from North Carolina and is not your typical gock group using old-timey instruments.
