Interview: Crying

A Revival To Remember

There’s nothing quite like the pulse through your bones that only ever happens in the presence of a well-mic’ed bass. And whether it’s that pulse, the steadfast environmentalism, or the contagious stomp-and-sway characteristic of Mountain Folk, any experience involving Elephant Revival turns into a spiritual awakening unlike any other. On December 9, 2016, Elephant Revival and their opener, Gipsy Moon,  came to town and brought down the house at the iconic Aggie Theater. Gipsy Moon, a local, budding folk group enjoyed a...
