TAMPA/ST. PETE: TO DO: THE URBANE COWBOYS, HAVE GUN-WILL TRAVEL & THE LEGENDARY SHACKSHAKERS; WEDNESDAY NIGHT @ CROWBAR in YBOR CITY


I said this on both Twitter and Facebook and I think it’s worth repeating here; I’d pretty much figured The Urbane Cowboys had called it quits, and yet here they are. Simply having them on a bill with Have Gun Will Travel makes this show worth its door charge (10 dollars I think), but then you add the utterly ridiculous cherry on top in the form of The Legendary ShackShakers. Those who know, know. Those who don’t…well, what the fuck is wrong with you? Get your ass to The Crowbar and see what Jello Biafra called rock and roll’s best frontman, Col. J.D. Wilkes. Snot rockets will be launched, pubes will be thrown, beers will be drank and howdies will get doodied. You may hate the music but you’ll love the show, I guarantee it. It’s Iggy Pop fronting Southern Culture on the Skids. The Southern gothic, rock and roll version of the Sex Pistols, but more entertaining and with more talent.

See you at the show!

    The Urbane Cowboys sound EXACTLY like Old 97s. I would have never known this wasn’t the Old 97s if you didn’t identify the artist.
