Dateline:  REV ROOM, LOTTA ROCK, ARKANSAS, APRIL 12 2008

The American Princes had a CD release party tonight (more on their new CD later), but the early crowd got a real treat tonight with opening act Silverton.   Silverton has a joyous air of “I can’t believe we’re up here” that utterly infects the room and sends every listener within earshot into involuntary spasms of waaaaaa-hooo!  Picture an eight-piece country rock ensemble of keyboards, tambourines, guitars, bass, drums, vocals from every which way, plus not-a-bit of rockstar attitude, and you’ve got Silverton.   Think what would happen if the B-52s invited some friends over for a hoedown.  How fun would that be?  That’s Silverton–shimmyfolkrocklightning in a bottle. 

Silverton.  Please.  I beg of you.   Make us all a CD of this moment, or I’m going to have to pull a Rerun and bootleg tape your shows. 

QUESTION:  What band did Rerun attempt to bootleg tape on the show “What’s Happenin’?”

Sibilance,

Glen

Hey, it’s Phillip from Silverton. Thanks for the great write ups. Coincidentally, Jessica’s dad did bootleg the show Saturday night, so we just might have that CD for you soon!
