Performance Date and Time : 
Saturday, July 15 4:00 PM

What if a group of indie rockers took a hard right turn into traditional country music, not worrying too much about the rules, except for the one that says "anything goes"? And what if they were fronted by a lead singer whose only country credentials are that she comes from a country (Taiwan) and doesn't really like country music? And what if they stretched the definition of "country music" to include...pretty much anything?
