The Shaw neighborhood will get a chance to have some rust blown out of the historic gates with City Dwelling Nature Seekers (band website) rolls into Pop’s Blue Moon (venue website) later this month. You have ample warning to work this fine band into your schedule as this is a Thursday evening event!
City Dwelling Nature Seekers is a six piece band that proudly hails from the rust belt, in particular, Pittsburgh, PA. They are currently touring in support of their newly released album “The Winter Year”, which should be available on ITunes later this month.
This band rocks one of the smoothest genres of home-brewed American music. If you drew a Venn diagram, (look it up if you didn’t take logic) that included circles for rock, folk, bluegrass with a tiny circle for hillbilly, where all those circles meet would be on stage with “CDNS”. Of course that is my opinion, but I did heer the word “hootenanny” in one of the interviews (hence the inclusion of “hillbilly”).
However you want to label their music, indie folk country rock Americana, it is fun. I’d suggest not wasting any time with labels and rolling down to Pop’s Blue Moon and supporting this uniquely peaceful style of American heritage music.
At least one reviewer sees them just like I heard them…
“The overall chemistry of the band was abundantly clear. Members seemed to exist as one unit during their performance. No one stole the show because the energy (whether high or low) was equally created and maintained by all members at all times. The level of intricacy that [City Dwelling Nature Seekers’] song writing entered was only matched by [their] ability to execute each one of them with ease.”
