live grass: Carolina Chocolate Drops at The Bowery Ballroom

Last weekend, I got to see Carolina Chocolate Drops at the Bowery Ballroom. This was my first time seeing them live. The venue was packed and the crowd was filled with everything from lively twenty somethings (mostly from the South I’m guessing based on the preppy fashion) to WFUV bearded sixty somethings.

The Drops have an amazing stage presence that really drew me (and the mrs.) in. Even non-grass fans should try to see them live. Thanks to my Flip Mino, I have some to share. Here are three songs from the show, which are all on the new album, Genuine Negro Jig.  See tour dates here and download their album below.
