Damn Yankees. Let's get something important out of the way right now: Bluegrass band Joy Kills Sorrow was formed in Boston. Just take a second to let that sink in.
Too cool for school. With their plaid shirts, skinny jeans, and pretty, youthful faces, this band doesn't particularly evoke the traditional bluegrass image of backwoods pickers. But these kids have quite the musical pedigree among them, counting the Berklee School of Music and the New England Conservatory among their alma maters.
Scenesters. This Cistern show is sponsored by Spoleto SCENE, the event's auxiliary group for young professionals. From the looks of them, the Joy Kills Sorrow kids will have no trouble fitting in with Charleston's budding arts patrons.
