This week we go back to March, 2014, for an RFC MINI SHOW that featured the very first public performance by Lovejoy and The Killjoys, the band that quickly transmogrified into That High Country Revival.

When I recorded the band, Lovejoy and The Killjoys was Chris Lovejoy on guitar and vocals, Matt Spade on mandolin and vocals and Stan Bumgardner playing fiddle. I had just met Chris and Matt briefly at Third Eye Cabaret the previous week, while Stan had appeared on RFC in the past with Elektro Biscuit and The Poor Taters. With the addition of a few other musicians the band became That High Country Revival, and they still play in Charleston to this day.
