The (Excellent) Band Behind The Viral "Guy On a Buffalo" Videos: Possum Posse

Gimmicks and insipid meme-generating fare can rockets a video into viral heaven, but it can also pigeonhole the video's creator. Austin's The Possum Posse are a crack band of roots musicians that, thanks to an ingenious mix of comedy, musicianship and pure silliness, have millions upon millions of YouTube views under their belts thanks to their brilliant "Guy On a Buffalo" series of videos. They're also a band that holds their own with any of the great, young rustic acts currently plying their craft in the Capital City along with Shakey Graves, Whiskey Shivers and the Crooks, among others.
