Carolina Story @Midnight, Barfield, The Tyrant @10:00pm – $10 at the door @9:30pm. 21+ only.
It’s rare you find a married music duo that adheres to none of the married-duo-cliches. Carolina Story write and perform songs, knowing that there are enough love songs on earth. They evoke the blue collar man and woman, because that’s exactly who they are. From their genesis, they have crafted their sound to be a perfect mix of the lyrical grit and wit of Hank Williams Sr. and the tender atmosphere of Heartbreaker-era Ryan Adams. Carolina Story (Ben and Emily Roberts) are from Arkansas and South Dakota respectively, meeting and falling in love in Memphis, Tennessee, setting up shop in East Nashville and making a name for themselves in every state in between.
Imagine one part Cash, one part Clash, some James Brown and a little Screamin’ Jay and you got Barfield, the Tyrant!! Funky, garage soul from Austin, TX.
