Memoires de scene, July 21 | Events
There is a lot of live music for the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and the Silver Dollar Showroom.
Tonight, The Cowboy welcomes Rob Baird, who is on the ’50 Best Independent Artists To Watch’ list, for one night only. Raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and now writing and touring in Austin, Texas, he brings a heartbreaking country that is genuine and true.
From Thursday to Saturday, Johnny Cash’s Bastard Sons are back in town. Described by Rolling Stone as “the uniquely American heart and soul,” the Bastard Sons are the voice and vision of songwriter Mark Stuart. Since the group’s formation in 1995, he has performed with most of the major artists in the country and the American community. He was personally authorized to use the band’s name by Johnny Cash himself.
And from Tuesday until the end of the month, Kurt Van Meter brings a new band, a very entertaining show and a feeling that something big is going to happen to him.
A little further, the Cowboy will host the Desert City Ramblers on August 26th. Tickets for this show, which range in price from $ 25 to $ 50, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
With the release of their first project in June 2020, the Desert City Ramblers made big waves in the music industry despite the shutdown that hit most of the country. Rather than sit idly by, the six-piece guitar group released a lot of music, including an eponymous five-song EP with the single “Hillbilly Rolling Stone” which clearly showcases the Ramblers’ great promise as a southerner. original and gritty. rockers steeped in the tradition of old-fashioned country writing.
“These guys are reminiscent of greats like the early Black Crowes, Blackberry Smoke, The Marshall Tucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd,” said Justin Smith, Cowboy Bar talent buyer. “They offer super tight arrangements, Allman Brothers-style dueling guitars, and great swagger. Just as we have been able to do with other bands like Midland and Runaway June, we are delighted to be able to present DCR at the start of what promises to be a long and successful career.
Around the corner and across the street to the Silver Dollar, Michael Monroe Goodman and the Honky Tonk Ninjas are bringing the heat on Thursday.
On Friday and Saturday, Cary Morin and Ghost Dog bring on stage a skillfully fingering guitar and expressive vocals that alternately convey the melodic exhilaration and the weariness of the world. Morin has been called “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” blending Native American roots infused with notes of bluegrass, folk, blues and rock.
Durango, Colorado, funk band Liver Down the River performs on July 31, and Dead Lee returns on August 7 with a new album, Ride of Die.
