UtopiaFest Preview: Blizten Trapper

7:27 am by

Blitzen Trapper has produced some of the best indie roots-rock around since 2003, gaining many fans with the release of 2008’s excellent Furr. Other BoT members have seen them live on multiple occasions, and the praise I’ve heard for their live show has me more excited about seeing them than any other band that I’m new to on the UtopiaFest lineup. Adding to the excitement is the quality of their new album, American Goldwing, which is an enjoyable classic-rock throwback with a ton of interesting flourishes. Catch them tonight on the Arrowhead stage at 10:30.
