San Francisco and string bands might not be synonymous, but pioneers have always made their way out West and Front Country aims to blaze a bluegrass trails in the Bay Area. Performing "If Something Breaks" from their latest release, Other Love Songs, at 25th Street Recording in Oakland, the band plucks and picks behind their fuchsia-haired front woman, Melody Walker. "We run hot and we run cold. It ain't perfect, Lord knows," she sings, "but if something breaks, we can fix it on the road." Sung like a true trailblazer.
