Sandwiched between sets from Athens, GA's, the Whigs and Minneapolis' Tapes 'n Tapes, it's easy to be overshadowed, but Glasgow rock'n'roll quartet Sons and Daughters found no trouble standing out on their own Sunday evening at the Rockstar Stage, as commanding frontwoman Adele Bethel and axeman/vocalist Scott Paterson led the band through one of the day's most energetic sets.

Watch the quartet rip through the chanting, brash groover "Johnny Cash," sung in their thick Scot brogue, below, and be sure to check back to SPIN.com all week long for much more from Bumbershoot '08.
