Why you should go: The Shakers apparently mix "the rustic charm of cotton-field hollers, funeral marches and murder ballads and the unhinged energy of Texas polkas, Southern blues, spaghetti Western anthems and gritty, punky sound bombs" in a reportedly "monstrous, agri-dustrial abomination." And that's BEFORE the Reverend.
