World Cafe: Next The Districts Leave School & End Up Head Of The Class

January 27, 2014 - It wasn't that long ago that the members of The District were in high school together in Lititz, Pennsylvania. Now after some wise touring (including a SXSW visit last year) and a video of one of the songs (that has over 300,000 views), they have an EP coming out on Fat Possum Records tomorrow.
Their indie and folk-rock influences are like many other bands, but these songs are simply better. You can download two on our World Cafe: Next podcast.
