Things that can help make you a successful indie music act these days:
1. Folk rock.
2. A Vaudeville-inflected fashion style. Or, at least, those little fedoras.
As it happens, The Lumineers can check off all three of those items. As it also happens, they're playing the Upstate Concert Hall on December 17. Tickets are free (thanks to EQX and a beer company -- thus a 21 and over requirement). Show's at 8 pm. Update: There is no pre-ticketing for this show, according to its promoter -- it will all be done at the door.
You've probably heard this band -- if the song "Ho Hey" isn't everywhere yet, it will be soon (it is a good song). And their album is in the top 10 on iTunes. But, really, the sign that they've made it: they've been covered by PS 22.
