How the Lake Street Dive Got Its Name
Lake Street Dive has a unique name created by frontwoman Rachel Olsen. There's an interesting story about the concept of the band. Before settling on being a multi-genre band, the band wanted to be a "free country band." As a free country band, the group would concentrate on playing country music, but only for free. Before creating the band, Olson played tons of dive bars in her hometown of Minneapolis, especially on Lake Street. The band's name is a tribute to the years of playing dive bars before becoming successful.
