Rusted Root, one of Pittsburgh’s most endearing and endurable bands, pours its frenetic blend of rock and world music into the brouhaha of the Hillbilly Haiku Americana Music Series, splendidly mixing with the evening’s hops and barley philanthropy. For 20 years, Rusted Root has roamed the world, accumulating a rabid fan base known as Rootheads due to its infectious performances and abundance of melodic pheromones. Known for the hit “Send Me On My Way,” which has been heard on television more often than lists of pharmaceutical side effects, Rusted Root’s kinetic chops aid in dance-machine digestion while dissipating passing mood clouds. Rounding out the evening of relaxed outdoor concentry, T.V. Mike and the Scarecrowes and gutsy chanteuse Bobbie Lancaster keep the vibes percolating while the landscape searches for a pretty companion to dance with. Each food and drink ticket is worth $1, giving the internal torso purse $9 worth of access to Upland brews, assorted beverages, and versatile fairground food that includes vegetarian options.
The Hillbilly Haiku Americana Music Series is an annual outdoor concert held by Upland Brewing Company for the main purpose of generating money for the Sycamore Land Trust, a nonprofit group dedicated to preserving the endangered landscape of southern Indiana. Attendees are welcome to bring a small collection of blankets, folding chairs, and a foldable, warm companion for this effervescent evening of drinks, rock 'n’ roll, and environmental awareness.
