Lake Street Dive exploded into the public eye in 2012 with a cover of Michael Jackson’s “I Want You Back.” The YouTube video shows off lead singer Rachel Price’s powerhouse vocals and put the band’s fun-loving vibe on full display; it went viral immediately and now boasts over three million views. Since then, they’ve released two full length albums—Bad Self Portraits and this year’s Side Pony—and they have established themselves as a perennial force in the music world. Recently Charleston Grit had the pleasure of chatting with Lake Street Dive guitarist Mike “McDuck” Olson about their latest album, their upcoming show at the Music Farm June 8th, and Hometeam BBQ—naturally.

My advice for taking in Friday night's show at the Music Farm, in a mere 20 Tips or Less. Really, buy me a Guinness and follow my advice. Only some of it though... Most of it doesn't even work for me
