"I heard they're all left handed. They had to go to a special class at the same school."
"No, I swear to god they met in the minor leagues. Bench warmers."
"Yeah, well I heard they moved out to the West Coast to claim an inheritance from a phony uncle and they got stranded."
"I don't believe any of the rumors, but you can tell they've done some hard time by the way they sing harmony."
This much we know:
The Lower 48 came west to Portland, Oregon when the weather got cold. They play 1960s-style pop rock and roll, and they have a big year planned.
"Somebody I know actually knows them. Apparently they're pretty decent cooks, but don't stay for dessert if you know what I'm saying..."
"Sarah speaks fluent Dutch and has a side project in The Netherlands with someone who knows the Talking Heads."
"I met them playing pool in San Francisco. They hail from Georgia, but Ben and Nick have spent more than a few years at sea."
"Shut the front door! I thought they got their start in West Hollywood."
"Dude. I see them in Minneapolis all the time."
"Alaska, man. They're from Juneau. That's the joke."
You know what they say. It's where you're at, not where you're from. So boom, baby! When The Lower 48 plays your town, where are you going to be?
