Greg Fleischut: The Lil' Billies at Maker Faire and The Audiophiles

Fleischutgreg Last year, I posted about Greg Fleischut, an ultra-talented 14-year-old musician who played in a bluegrass band called The Lil' Billies. I received a bunch of reader emails raving about Greg's music. In the last year though, Greg, now 15, has moved into the indy rock arena with his new band The Audiophiles. Right now, The Audiophiles are in a Battle of the Bands for a chance to play the Vans Warped Tour at the San Francisco Bay Area stop. (Listen and vote for The Audiophiles here.) I know it would be fun for Greg to play the Warped Tour but I'm more excited about his next gig! I convinced him to go back to his bluegrass roots and reunite the Lil' Billies for a special performance at MAKE:'s upcoming Maker Faire, May 19 and 20 at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. The Lil' Billies play the outdoor stage on Saturday, May 19, at 11:15am.
