OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW TO PERFORM ON LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O’ BRIEN TUESDAY, DECEMBER 23 BAND LANDS IN ROLLING STONE’S “BEST OF 2008” ISSUE
TOUR DATES CONFIRMED WITH DAVE MATTHEWS BAND
“It’s OCMS’s scrappy, fervent playing that reinvents old-time for a whole new generation. Live, the band is a mesmerizing mess of strings and sweat.” – The Onion
OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW (OCMS) are ending 2008 with a performance of “Alabama High-Test” on Late Night with Conan O’Brien on Tuesday, December 23. The track, from their latest album Tennessee Pusher, has proven to be one of their most popular live songs and landed the band in Rolling Stone’s “Best of 2008” issue on the “Singles of the Year” list. The magazine called the song “a fast-rhyming banjo blues from old-timey cowpunks…”
OCMS is also excited to announce that they will open three shows for Dave Matthews Band on April 17 and 18 in Charlottesville, VA at the John Paul Jones Arena, and April 20 in Pelham, AL at the Verizon Wireless Music Center. Prior to that, the fivesome will be touring the south with The Felice Brothers as support and heading to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in their career; tour dates will be announced shortly.
Tennessee Pusher, the third Nettwerk release from OCMS, debuted in September at #50 on the Billboard 200, #7 on the Top Country Albums chart, #16 on the Top Digital Albums chart and #1 on the Top Bluegrass Album chart (where it stayed consistently for 12 weeks). The band recently wrapped a major UK and North American tour where they played close to 50 shows, the majority of which sold out. Additionally, they appeared on A Prairie Home Companion and stopped by World Café for a special session.
Stay tuned for more tour announcements in the coming weeks.
