Guns Or Butter - Digivegas 114

My guest this week is one of the most active bands I have ever met, Hot Buttered Rum, from San Francisco, CA. Erik Yates joins me to discuss the many activities and causes the band is involved in beyond their music. Hot Buttered Rum makes no separation between their music and their activism. They unapologetically undergird their shows with songs about social equality, environmental responsibility, and political change, and then back it up by touring in a biofueled bus and donating their time to service work at schools, Native American reservations, and political fundraisers.

Oh yeah, then there's the music too. It's a blend of American styles—folk, rock, jazz, and newgrass. It's great stuff! Check it out on episode 114 of DigiVegas.
