They don’t actually play jugs – and maybe that ain’t a bad thing.
In fact, the South Austin Jug Band, traveling to Los Alamos for this weekend’s Kite Festival, has gotten quite a bit of attention lately for its very un-jug-like sound.

Listen for Stevie Wonder, Béla Fleck and Nine Inch Nails.
You’ll hear their influence. In Beck’s case, you’ll even hear a cover tune.
