Split Lip Rayfield / Ricky Fitts / Solagget

Bottleneck

Hillbilly hardcore, post-punk progressive bluegrass, Appalachian Black Sabbath - whatever you call what Split Lip plays, fact is there should be nary a Kansan that doesn't take pride in this quintessential Kansas freak show. The foursome plays traditional bluegrass instruments (excepting a one-string upright bass fashioned from a gas tank) with fury to whip the whole crowd into a sweaty frenzy, pummeling the poor PAs systems that dare to channel their wrath. Openers Ricky Fitts and Solaggett offer two very different looks: the former, aggressive art punk; the latter, gorgeous instrumental jams in the vein of Tortoise. The only catch - all three hail from Wichita.
