The Live from the Underground (LFTU) performance series continues this Thursday with a performance by The Milkhouse Heaters. The entire 7pm performance on Thursday, May 27th will be livestreamed digitally on Bandcamp, with the first song of the performance broadcast on Facebook as well. The performance will be followed by an interview with LFTU co-host Jim Yeager.
Ex-rockers from the Boston music scene, The Milkhouse Heaters are Mike and Jan Sheehy, who settled in Bellows Falls, VT where the humble seeds of the band were planted. Weaving tall tales and sad stories of the sometimes comical and tragic human condition, their music has been described as being like Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons meets Chrissie Hynde and Joey Ramone. With powerful dual vocals, driving guitar and thumping bass, as well as harmonica and the occasional kazoo, The Milkhouse Heaters have a unique sound all their own which they describe as Indie Americana. Mike and Jan have shared stages with Billy Bragg, Fred Eaglesmith, and The Black Crowes, and have been featured on compilation CD’s with G. Love and Jack Johnson, as well as Burning Spear, and others.
