Rollin’ Up

By: Laurie Gallardo

Upon their arrival to Austin (via Northeastern Pennsylvania) in 2007, brothers Bill and Matt Pucci hit the ground running with their musical pursuits, and following a series of several picking sessions on the porch, Sour Bridges came to be. And anyone familiar with their lightning-rod live performances knows the band has a way of whipping bluegrass into “browngrass,” something more wickedly rough and rusted. Crazy good times with unforgettable live shows.

These days, the evolution of their sound brings something more innately flowing and mellow with their latest three-track release, Roll Us Up Something Good. Hear the new music when Sour Bridges plays on Bud’s Live and Direct, starting at 6 p.m. (Central) Wednesday December 9, on Bud’s YouTube channel.
