Lowdown: Battling KFC's Factory Farming With Bluegrass (VIDEO)

(Above: When bluegrass attacks.)

The ol' Eureka Inn's on a slight roll.  

Tuesday night The Palm Lounge will again try to capture the same off night magic that was on full display Sunday for the packed La Luz show when local "face melt torch country" group Gunsafe share the stage with returning Arizona punkgrass posse The Haymarket Squares.

Random Haymarket Squares trivia: The band members are not fans of factory farming. I mean, who is, really? The difference between you and the Squares is that they staged a confrontational bluegrass flash mob in their local KFC to perform their protest song "Down on the Farm." A lyrical sample:

"Meet the product of laboratory tests,
Stuffed in cages, a maze of metal nests
Drunk on hormones, they grow 'til their grotesque
It barely passes for life. And at the end a butcher's knife

They're just animals, what's the harm?
Another day of dirty work down on the farm." 

Needless to say, KFC was not pleased a evidenced in the video below. But you are not KFC. Thus, you may be if you drag your ears to The Palm. Other more bucket o' chicken-friendly Tuesday night options in your Lowdown below.
