CAROLINA CHOCOLATE DROPS
STEAL THE SHOW
Day Two of LOU FEST
in Forest Park
drew bigger crowds, sunny weather
and some national acclaimed artists,
but an old-time string band
from Durham, North Carolina
stole the show!
The CAROLINA CHOCOLATE DROPS
had Day Two festival goers pleasantly stunned
with their blue grass and traditional music,
they describe as Genuine Negro Jig.
The band enjoyed several non-stop standing ovations.
Jeff Tweedy performed a solo set (yawn-yawn),
and Zooey Deschanel followed in She & Him
(on over-produced "prom band", some said),
but the Chocolate Drops owned the day!
Here's hoping there's a 2nd Annual LOU FEST next year.
