They’ve come a long way since playing McGrady’s in 2011

In fairness, they were playing medium sized venues at the time, and stopped for a night in Cville because a band member’s brother lived here. They called around looking for a bar to play in for a few hundred bucks and free food and beer. Only about 20-30 people in the room, half of which were listening to the music and half were annoyed by it. Small world, and good for them.

From McGrady’s email list that day:

“Music and beer fans,

We lucked out and got a great last minute gig from The Revivalists for tonight at 9pm! They are all the way from New Orleans and stopping at McGrady's on their way down the east coast. The show will be free and if you show up between 6 and 7pm you can take advantage of Bell's Brewery free beer tasting! Sounds like your Thursday night just got a whole lot more exciting...

Your friends at McGrady's.”
