Oakhurst on tour and in need of veggie oil
Remember last year when gas was like ninety bucks a gallon and the roadways in Denver were littered with gangs of unscrupulous opportunists roving the streets all Mad Max style, armed with rubber hoses (and not much common sense), in search of the next vehicle to commandeer and subsequently siphon? Yeah. Crazy, right? Desperate, harrowing times those were. Heck, it was enough to cause guys like Michael Dean Damron to rethink the whole touring thing entirely. Well, you know what they say: When the going gets tough, the tough figure out how to get around on vegetable oil. Oakhurst is just one of the bands locally who set about touring solely using the cast-offs of others. But wouldn't you know it, now that gas prices are back down to a reasonable level, the economy is in the crapper and the dudes are having a heck of a time getting their hands on the greasy stuff. If you have any leads on where they can find the hookup across the country (right now, they're in Florida), by all means give them Oakhurst fellers a shout. Consider it doing your part to save the environment while keeping some local homeboys on the road.
