Sounds of Macrock 2014 #6: Grass Is Green

A wonderful thing happens every year in the beauteous mountains of Western Virginia. For one weekend in early April, the city of Harrisonburg is the epicenter of a dynamite little festival, the Mid Atlantic College Radio Conference, otherwise known as Macrock. I’ve been to a couple of these events, and have had a brilliant time taking in the bands and breathing the beautiful mountain air. Alas and alack, I won’t be in Harrisonburg this weekend for this year’s Macrock, but that doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention to who’s going to be playing. I’ve made a list of bands I think worthy of your time, whether you’re heading to the mountains or not.

You know how it goes. The grass is always greener...except this time. Grass Is Green has some pretty green grass in their own right. They're loud, they're shouty, they're grimy, and I like it. Methinks this is a band that could seriously throw down in the flesh. So go and find out.
