Thrift Store Cowboys


The spirit of the Whiskeytown has been summonsed. I’m not sure if the Lubbock band used a Ouija board or several evenings lit up with candles and chants, but they did the job and took it a step further. Upon first listen, your eyes are taken to a place of desolation, desert, and open spaces. Little Texas towns where the Friday night hangout is a Sonic and the VFW is the local watering hole. Thrift Store Cowboys earnest melodies from Amanda Shires and Daniel Fluitt create the same energy that Caitlin Cary and Ryan Adams were able to create when they were changing the rules in a scene that many have long forgotten.  The Americana scene isn’t what is once was, but we have some new direction now. The perfect culmination of violin,  glockenspiel, accordion, banjo, hammond, pedal steel guitar, Weissenborn, lap steel, saw, and Wurlitzer create the perfect dust storm of twang. The Red Raider lovin’ Thrift Store Cowboys are galloping on some new dusty trails that are worth check out tonight at the Hi-Dive.
