local clippings: LA’s Rose’s Pawn Shop

I love hearing from folks about new music. But more often than not, I don’t really like the music that I’m pitched. However, this week the wind must have been blowing the right way. I got a note from Paul Givant of the LA-based bluegrass band Rose’s Pawn Shop…and it was good.

The band, which kicked off in 2006 and has played at a number of festivals like Floydfest, CMJ and last week’s SXSW since, plays full on foot-stomping bluegrass. These guys seem like they’ll be a lot of fun live. Check out their tour dates here…just missed their SXSW shows, but a few other west coast dates. Their newest album is called Dancing in the Gallows and you can listen to it on the band’s website.
