It's highly unlikely that the Florida Citrus Commission even knows about, let alone condones, the upcoming five-city Citrus Circuit Tour. But it would definitely be in their best interest if they did. The four acts traveling together as the Citrus Circuit Tour are not only good, but they're good for what ails you.
Take Truckstop Coffee, a four-piece out of Lake Worth. The name alone promises another stretch of highway on the horizon, the asphalt that links our towns together. And their sound reflects it -- the band surely plays what sounds like the very roots of the American road. And if that doesn't get you out of the house and into a better frame of mind, well, there may be no cure for whatever it is you've come down with.
As a taster, here's their song "Gas Tank." It's the first single off their upcoming album, For Dear Life, which was recorded in Orlando at Five Spot Records.
