Dance Yer Ass Off #5 feat. The Hogslop String Band, Nikki Lane & Jake Cox
Presented by Holler & Stomp
If the idea of a barn dance for hipsters sounds like the kind of retro thing you could do without, you must be a hipster yourself.Dance Yer Ass Off! brings the barn-dance experience to folks who want to, well, get out and dance to old-time string-band music — but there’s more.Tonight’s show features the Hog Slop String Band, who will play your favorites.Also on the bill is Jake Cox, a banjoist who routinely tears it up playing his brand of outlaw country in his hometown of Galax, Va.The event sports real old-time callers to keep dancers in line, and tonight’s show stars the fabulous Nikki Lane, who brings the time-honored concept of glamour into play.Lane was made for transcendent-trash stardom, and she made something of her old-time country obsessions on last year’s fine full-length, Walk of Shame.
