North Carolina's The New Familiars will be taking to the road this month as they take off to Kansas and Missouri for a small tour. First, though, they'll be stopping to play Charlotte on the fourth of July at the U.S. National White Water Center. The show is free--just like America. What better way is there to celebrate Independence Day than with some rocking Americana? The New Familiars have been known to bust out the mandolin and resonator alongside the electric guitar, so it's sure to be a good evening of rough-edged Appalachian sounds. For a preview, check out The New Familiars performing "In Love" at Groverfest 2010.
