Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains - Caught in the Act of Not Being Awesome

Johnny Hobo is a band that truly lives to it's name. A folk punk band from Vermont, the common theme of their music is getting drunk, drugs, anarchist revolutions, and traveling across country(mostly on trains). Johnny Hobo could usually be seen playing on the side of roads, and playing for small crowds. They are commonly described as "if Ghost Mice was getting drunk on a bus with Leftover Crack and picked up the Mountain Goats and a stranger with a bag full of coffee & narcotics" and it is a true description for the most part. "New Mexico Song" is one of my top played songs at the moment, give it a try.
