Remember when we did the Warped Tour show and I interviewed a ton of bands that I knew nothing about? Well, these next couple of weeks are nothing like that. I recently went to The Fest, in Gainesville, and had a chance to talk to some artists I’ve known and loved for a long time. First up is the amazing Austin Lucas.
Austin is a folk singer who used to (and still does occasionally) front crust and grind bands. Despite that odd history, Austin is very much a traditional folk musician. His father, Bob Lucas, played traditional folk and taught Austin the music as a child. Now that he’s come into his own, Austin plays soulful folk, with enough punch to attract even the most jaded punk. Many people know Austin for his album with Chuck Ragan, Bristle Ridge, but Austin is very much a talented and accomplished musician in his own right. Please check out the show and learn more about this awesome musician.
We have a chance for you to win Austin’s first LP, The Common Cold. This was pressed only in Europe and is out off 500 and is long out of print (holy run on sentence!). Listen to the last 8 minutes, or so, of the show for the rules on entry. And as always, be sure to drop use a line at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or here in our comments section and remember, “his choice, basically, is whether he is going to be Uncle Sam for the people of this country or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations”.
