There are a gazillion reasons to get excited about Greensky Bluegrass playing the Top Hat on Oct. 24. For one, it's presented by the Indy. And yes, the band's reputation is pretty rad. There are also details you should know about, like the $12 advance tickets and Relix describing a live show as "an ethereal experience" (dude) and the critically acclaimed new album titled Handguns. We could go on, but let's cut to one nugget that should get you running to the show: evidence of a spirited "Eye of the Tiger" cover.
Now, we're not guaranteeing the band will play some Survivor. But we can tell you they play creative covers regularly, like Michael Jackson and Phish (Dude!) and Talking Heads and Bruce and Cypress Hill (DUDE!). They don't trumpet the slogan "We're coming to your town to help you party down" for nothing, you know.
But, rest assured, Greensky Bluegrass delivers originals just as memorable as their covers. Here's one we hope makes the Top Hat set for obvious reasons:
