The North Country
Combining American roots rock and roll with the lyrical earnestness of folk, The North Country brings to DC a musical and spiritual call to arms that is both sophisticated and imminently listenable. The North Country are musical traditionalist, operating under the mindset that in an age of endlessly processed and commodified music there is still no substitute for thoughtful songwriting and tasteful musicianship. Whether playing a house show in a sweaty basement in Petworth or on the main stage at The Black Cat The North Country bring the same level of enthusiasm and intentionality that will leave you with no choice but to have a good time.
