So, I am sitting in my local bar the other night having a descent conversation with my good buddies Beam and Ginger when a new email comes through in the cell phone. I open up the email to read:
PINE BOX BOYS, BLIND BUDDY MOODY AND
SOME DANCING SKELETON JANUARY 25th AT
DAVES AQUA LOUNGE
At first I thought I was just drunk so I read it again; slowly…Pine. Box. Boys. Can’t be the same guys…scroll down…yup that’s them. OH SHIT! The Pine Box Boys are playing Dave’s! At which point I did the happy dance. Last year when I wrote about the band I described them like this:
They classify themselves Southern Horrorbilly and/or Darkgrass. I have no idea what either of those terms mean. Personally, I would describe their sound as a darker version of Old Crow Medicine Show . a much much darker version. Like, OCMS meets Those Poor Bastards. These are dark blue grassy songs for the dark humored. Call em love songs for the recently deceased.
Come see it for yourself on Friday night @ Dave’s Aqua Lounge. Showtime is 9:30 and the cover is seven dollars.
EDIT: I just got this message from Dobbs (Pine Box Boys drummer):
it is going to be nuts because i am from there and family and friends will decend upon there with a vengence.
This show has officially gotten 150% better!
