Sean Wheeler and the Reluctant Messengers @12am, Greyhounds @10pm – $15 cover. 21+ only.
Desert Legend Sean Wheeler (Throw Rag) demonstrates a storyteller’s love of a good tale and an understanding that there is nothing separating classic American musical forms — it can all be played together, and often in the same song. The seasoned musicians who comprise the Reluctant Messengers are Billy Pitman on guitar (Jimmie Vaughan), Emily Gimble on keys, and Michael Archer on bass, and Hunt Sales on drums.
Austin duo Greyhounds release Primates, their 5th full-length record (and first for Nine Mile Records), on July 10. American Songwriter is streaming the record IN FULL this week before the release, and asked singer/keyboardist Anthony Farrell about the duo’s 20th anniversary, each track on the album, and how it was working with producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos).
