If Hootie and the Blowfish decided to start making indie rock music, you would have Red Wanting Blue. The band, which formed in Athens, OH, in 1996, weaves ukulele and lap steel into many of their tunes, as any good indie band should. They have been touring the country without the support of a label for over a decade and are making their way to The Saint on April 9. Tickets are $12. myspace.com/redwantingblue.
