When the weather in South Florida starts to heat up, we locals get the hell out and go places, far away, very foreign places like Alaska. Recently when heading up on such a trip to Kentucky to visit Southern relatives, word came to us that a musical act from the Bluegrass State was making their way to Lake Worth's Speakeasy Lounge.
Fifth on the Floor is coming counter-intuitively south to perform with Reckless Dames this Monday night. Drummer Aaron Graham was kind enough to allow us a peek into his musical mind by allowing us to critique his CD collection. Here are five of the most curious albums we found on the shelf of an authentic country rocker.
5. Mastodon's Leviathan
"Originally," Graham admits, "I wasn't interested in playing country. I was really into heavy metal."
4. Winifred Horan and Friends' Pleasures of Home
"I spent a year studying Irish club bands. Then performed an hour long recital on a Bhodran drum." Graham disclosed. (A what? Thank you, Wikipedia.)
