Billy Strings brought a double-whammy of sold out weekend shows to The Independent. Bluegrass sweat and smoke rose and fell throughout the crowd as the fresh, rejuvenating raw energy of Billy Strings and his merry musicians psych-blue-rock-grassed the night into a collective happy-hippie hoedown. His album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, is the bees knees.
