PoDank String Band

Gaslight Gardens

Split Lip what? With everyone's favorite bluegrass band MIA at this year's Walnut Valley Festival, Tulsa's PoDank String Band was the new king of the castle. Though they might be mistaken for a punk band by the looks of them, PoDank is firmly rooted in bluegrass's traditions - and that's what allows them to break the rules at will. Incorporating a punk rock energy and a blues-informed swagger, PoDank's "bastard grass" is a firm reminder that properly handled fiddles and banjos can bring down the house like a Marshall stack can only dream of.
