So this is the Waco Brothers. The guys are not from Waco and they are not brothers. Instead they are one of the best live club bands you'll ever see, and I'm fortunate to do that often in their adopted hometown of Chicago. We'll be seeing them again Saturday when they close out the "Bloodshot Records Day" at the Taste of Chicago in Grant Park.
I highly recommend going to see the Wacos if you get the chance. You won't be disappointed. Check out Bloodshot Records, too. It's an independent label based in Chicago focusing on "insurgent country" music, which beats the hell out of the crap passing for country music these days.
On that note, check out this video of a song that reflects my feelings toward Nashville as well. Jon Langford does a much better job expressing those than I ever could.
