“Dumptruck Butterlips spreads the bluegrass love: In a room full of Americana and bluegrass fans, Dumptruck Butterlips draws stares. At the Halfway to Winfield showcase on March 26, Ashley Zeigenbein, Sarah Dettmer and Megan Hartman wore sequined, striped bodices of red, black and white and striped tights. Singer Chad Smith's dark shirt exposed his tattoos; on his head was a dark newsboy cap. The audience in Crosstown Station looked skeptical as Dumptruck Butterlips tuned its instruments. But raised eyebrows settled and smiles widened as the group laid into the sultry, twangy riffs of its signature song, "Dumptruck Butterlips." ”
