UPDATE: Downtown Sanford Inc. postponed tonight’s concert because of wet conditions and the forecast of more rain tonight. A make-up date will be announced.
Gasoline Stove returns to the stage at Depot Park in Downtown Sanford tonight for the fifth Function at the Junction concert of the summer.
Self-described as “a timeless four-piece band mixing old country, folk, gospel, Americana, rock and roots together to create dramatic but playful blues ballads,” the band formed in Pittsboro in 2010. They’ve also recently played and are scheduled to play shows and festivals across the state in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham Mount Airy, Carolina Beach, Oak Island and Shakori Hills.
Gasoline Stove released its first album, Vultures on the Mainframe, in 2010, and followed up with Dead Mule Songs in 2014. In January, the band celebrated the release of its third album, Laundromat, which features the song, Back Porch Living (video above).
Function at the Junction runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at Depot Park. Tonight is the penultimate show of the series’ first half — local CCR-inspired musicians Bad Moon Rising play next Thursday, then the series resumes on Aug. 3 with Kelly and the Cowboys.
