CRAIG BROWN BAND (DETROIT Country-ish rock twang) THE LUCKY ONES, Craig Brown Band’s Third Man Records (Jack Whites label) release is built upon the work of those daring punks who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al.). Live, the Craig Brown Band might look like they slept at the club, but deliver a surprisingly polished and tuneful sound that will have even the gnarliest of disenfranchised young people pocketing their phones—for at least a few tunes, anyway. The good ol' boys in the band, Eric, Perry and Young Andrew hold down the bedraggled hillbilly-deluxe-meets-dive-bar-classic-rock, offset by the pitch-perfect honeyed harmonies of Drinkard sisters, Caitlin and Bonnie. Just the kind of band you scratch your head to in the beginning but rave to your friends about how much they rule in the end.
HUNDRED PACER (Ott Roots/New Wave)
Rey Sabatin describing his band... "Somebody described it as Cyndi Lauper meets Bruce Springsteen or Tom Petty. I have 10 brothers and sisters, so I had to listen to all their musical follies … new wave was one of those things that I got out of it."
CHRIS LANDRY & THE SEASICK MOMMAS (Ottawa Alt Country/Folk)
Twangy, forlorn & straight from the heart. Excited to have the Seasick Mommas at TARG!
THE DUMB AND HOMELY BAND
Local country-comedy duo with a plugged-in washboard, a six-string and a bad attitude. For fans of Dewey Cox, Stompin' Tom Conners and The Dead Milkmen.... oh we dare you to shout out ANY Hank Willians request!
