If you're looking to be dazzled long after the July 4th fireworks have shimmered away, then don your tweed vest and vintage dress to see The Dustbowl Revival.

The group, dubbed as the city's best live band by LA Weekly, performs at LA's Ford Theatres this Saturday for the Zev Yarosklavsky Signature Series. The concert series pairs world-renowned artists with some of the area's best local musicians.

Despite The Dustbowl Revival's mix of genres that come from the American South — like bluegrass, hot swing and swamp blues, and more — it's a distinctly L.A. band.

Founder Zach Lupetin and vocalist Liz Beebe joins Take Two to talk about their energetic retro sound and how Craigslist brought the band together.
