    Anyone in here fans of Barefoot Jerry? Their first two albums are pretty nice listening.

    I trust that everyone reading htis thread has also been following the AV Club's "Nashville or Bust" series in with Nathan Rabin, the AV Club's hip hop specialist, dove into country music for a year, covering a different artist each week. Here is the Townes Van Zandt column he posted this week: http://www.avclub.com/articles/week-...n-zandt,43989/
    Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.

    I will admit to not knowing Green on Red beyond their early "paisley" stuff at all.

    I had the Long Ryders' State of Our Union and Two Fisted Tales on vinyl back when they came out but had sort of forgotten about them. "Looking for Lewis and Clark" is a pretty cool song though. One of the band members was once briefly married to Lucinda Williams, by the way.

    I always think of the Meat Puppets as a punk band.

    I don't know a lot of their stuff. I guess I'm just thinking of the one song Nirvana covered. In any case, maybe they could be cowpunk?

    Green on Red ditched the paisley stuff almost entirely after their debut EP. Their second full-length, Gas Food Lodging is definitely worth a listen. Very rootsy, and reminds me a lot of Uncle Tupelo, only several years early.

    heartworn highways was a decent documentary about back-to-basics country in 1975, but the dvd extras of a christmas gatherings, of a bunch of the musicians involved playing music together, was even better. interesting seeing a young steve earle.

    We are playing a show tonight with a band called American Aquarium, from Raleigh, NC. Getting into them has been a nice alt-country discovery for me.

    Edit: Bill Mallonee was just added, which is pretty cool:

    I went to a festival in NC they played, but missed their show. I don't know their music yet. How was it playing with them?

    So the same radio station that did the tribute for Townes Van Zandt last year is doing a fundraising tribute show for Uncle Tupelo this year, and we will be playing. The five songs we will be performing are:

    1. Gun
    2. Looking for a Way Out
    3. New Madrid
    4. True to Life
    5. I Got Drunk

    The show's on Dec. 4th and there will be video and audio forthcoming. It should be fun.

    They were good, but apparently their keybpard player had just quit and the tour manager was sitting in on bass. I imagine they would have been even better at full steam.

    Bill Mallonee was also on the bill, and he was great. He came on stage with us and played harmonica on our version of The Band's "Evangeline".
