Sylva gets in the tub

Popular Jackson County Americana/bluegrass group Ol’ Dirty Bathtub will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, July 30, at Lazy Hiker Brewing in Sylva. 

“We’ve always had energy when playing on someone’s porch, but on several occasions lately we have been able to replicate it live,” said ODB guitarist Jerad Davis. “And that’s what makes this fun — people dancing, rooms getting hot, creating an atmosphere that is as fun for those listening as it is for us onstage. That’s why we do it. And that fuels the passion, the creativity. It’s a double positive feedback loop.”

The show is free and open to the public. The band’s debut album “Pack Mule” is now available for purchase. www.facebook.com/oldirtybathtub.
