Anna & Co. should be thankful, as we all are, that Reeves showed up Friday because the normal Tim trio is tough to top. Who is Reeves Gabrels? He plays guitar for a little band called The Cure and was David Bowie’s guitar player before that.

Where else can you get a free, kick-ass rock show with no cover and drink specials from 6:00-8:30 on a Friday? Seriously, if you know, tell me. How many other living souls can say that John Prine recorded one of their songs?
He has opened for punk the Ramones.  He’s even been name-dropped in a Robbie Fulks classic “F This Town.

This has always been my favorite way to end my week. Many of you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t had the pleasure, I highly recommend you go next Friday. And every subsequent Friday.

Eleot Roth & Chris Lowe take “a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll” to a whole new level with boutique western swing compositions and arrangements influenced by Dwight Yoakam and AC/DC.

They closed out a great evening of music at Dee’s hosted by Nick Nace on Americana Eve. After some relatively mellow tunes by the likes of Mercy Bell and Jaimee Harris, these guys came out and grabbed my attention with an Ennio Morricone-styled, operatic guitar solo that sounded like it belonged on the soundtrack for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I could see tumbleweeds rolling past cow skulls propped at the base of cacti when I closed my eyes. Once they got my attention, they never gave it back until the end of a sweaty, high-energy set which was the perfect way to close out my birthday.

Stay tuned at the end of the month for the release of their EP Average American Band. Go see them at the Springwater Supper Club with Laurel & the Love In and Flying Buffaloes on September 29th.
