The Oh Hellos are at the Bottleneck tonight
In 2012, a virus infected pockets of the country that led to a frenzied craze for spirited banjo tunes and earthy harmonies. English imports Mumford & Sons led the outbreak, releasing one of the year’s top-selling albums, and the group’s cause was helped along by the Lumineers, whose self-titled debut gave us the eye-twitch inducing “Hey Ho.” Then there was Texas duo the Oh Hellos, whose Through the Deep, Dark Valley, despite all the sonic similarities, didn’t shoot it into the Mumfordian stratosphere.
This is good news for anyone wanting the same folk-rock experience without the hype — and the high ticket prices. Ready yourself for swelling choruses when the Oh Hellos hit the Bottleneck tonight.
