WUMB Presents, Damn Tall Buildings


Thursday January 19th, 2017
6 pm - Doors & WUMB spins live from the Backroom with Jess Phaneuf
7 pm - Showtime!


“The Carter Family for the millennial generation...The band coined the term ‘guerrilla roots’ to describe its sound, which draws on early-20th-century Americana/bluegrass music, ‘repurposed for a modern audience.’” (The Boston Globe) Damn Tall Buildings was born in January of 2013, busking on Newbury Street in Boston, MA. Through street performing, this dynamic quartet formed the foundation for the fully-immersive and truly electrifying performance for which they are known today. Priding themselves on their robust tour schedule, DTB has performed at numerous venues and festivals across the continental U.S. – most recently including GreyFox Bluegrass Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass On The Bogs, Vinegrass, Otis Mountain Get Down and Freshgrass Festival(where they were awarded 2nd place in the 2016 band competition). During the span of these tours, they've shared the stage with artists such as The California Honeydrops, The Dustbowl Revival, Sierra Hull, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Gangstagrass, and many more.

Upstate Rubdown Opens
Upstate Rubdown is an acoustic septet drawing inspiration from every corner (and decade) of America's musical heritage. Based in New York's Hudson Valley region, the band has spent years cultivating its sound, and continues to grow by the tune. The instrumentation includes Harry D'Agostino on upright bass, Ryan Chappell on mandolin, Dean Mahoney on cajón, and Christian Joao on flute and alto/baritone saxophone. The dynamic rhythm section supports a three part vocal harmony powerhouse of founding members Mary Kenney and Melanie Glenn with recent Nashville-transplant Allison Olender.
