    I freaking love The Budos Band but I just have one question:

    How come everyone just now is coming out of the woodwork to get on the bandwagon? It seems kinda of random.

    It’s not a new record label. All 4 of their albums (3 LP and 1 EP) were released on the same label (Daptone).

    Ashevillain7: The bandwagon effect might have something to do with the fact that the Budos haven’t played the South much at all. This is only their 2nd time in Asheville, and other than some one-offs in New Orleans and Florida that simply haven’t tapped the Southeast. The time is now!
