Betsy Kingston and the Crowns
Friday at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom
For a relatively new band, Betsy Kingston has received some pretty high accolades, especially for a band coming from Athens, where its hard to get attention. Kingstons band comes complete with a horn section and seems to bounce between the Muscle Shoals soulful sound to sounds reminiscent of Big Brother and the Holding Company. Kingstons voice delivers the right stuff to go along with that powerful band. If you like soulful rock n roll, this is the band to see. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.
