Western Youth @Midnight, Bonnie Montgomery @10:00pm – $10 cover at the door @9:30pm. No advance tickets. 21+ only.
Hailing from Austin, TX by way of Dallas, Houston, Ohio, and New Zealand’s southern island, Western Youth staggers between rock n’ roll, folk and alt. country to create a sound that’s all their own.
Their debut album, ‘Leaving The Station,’ produced by Monahans’ Britton Beisenherz, was released in 2013 to critical acclaim. Texas Music said it had “a smartly balanced mix of Southern rock and pensive weepers”
Currently working on their follow-up album due out in Spring 2018, Western Youth is Taylor Williams (vocals, guitar), Matt Gregg (vocals, guitar), Graham Weber (vocals, guitar), Brian Bowe (drums), Sean Spiller (bass), and Sam Powell (keys).
Upon first listening to Bonnie Montgomery, it’s easy to mistakenly assume that you’ve stumbled upon a long-buried track by a legend from the golden era of country/western music. Such is the artistry of this Arkansas native and silver-voiced songstress. Her story is of her journey, but she presents it through a folk/bluegrass/country perspective that’s traditional and timeless.
