Show Post: In House #1543
Austin, Texas alt-honky tonkers the Gourds returned this week with Heavy Ornamentals, the band's ninth full-length release.
Self-proclaimed as "music for the unwashed and well-read," the Gourds have been a part of the vibrant Austin scene for nearly fifteen years now, serving up a unique mix of country, jam rock, bluegrass and whatever else has happened to sneak its way into the creases along the way. This time around, the band tends a bit more toward the rock side of things, coming across like a Texafied Crazy Horse with a bit of The Band thrown in for good measure. The new album comes just a bit over a year after their last effort, 2004's excellent Blood of the Ram.
In House #1543.
Focus: New release from the Gourds, Heavy Ornamentals, plus Jesse Dayton & the Supersuckers in Salt Lake City tonight and new music from Van Morrison, Deadstring Brothers and more.
