The debut of Black River



OK, I don't know why, but I somehow thought Black River was going to be a real heavy rock band. I guess because their name brought to mind both Black Sabbath and Green River. As it turns out, they're more alt-country-rock, kind of in the vein as the Cartridge Family, which isn't surprising seeing as singer/guitarist CJ Irwin and guitarist Joe Rechel (who is a really fun-to-watch slide guitarist) are in both bands.

Here's video from their debut show, Friday at Sadlack's.
