Outlaw Country at Whiskey Dicks
Whiskey Dicks Saloon boasts “an evening of Outlaw Country” on Friday, Sept. 2, courtesy of Late-Nite Productions. Supersuckers and Cash Only Band — a Johnny Cash tribute — start the fun late, with doors opening at 9 p.m.
“Something of an anomaly on the Sub Pop roster, the Supersuckers bore a limited surface resemblance to grunge, but they were a party band at heart, donning cowboy hats and kicking out a gleefully trashy brand of throttling, rockabilly-flavored garage punk,” states a press release from Late-Nite Productions.
“Save for an abrupt and temporary detour into hardcore honky tonk, their approach stayed relatively consistent through the ‘90s, as did their quality control,” according to the release.
The group, which formed in Tucson, Arizona in 1988, is comprised of members Eddie Spaghetti, Ron Heathman, Dan “Thunder” Bolton, Dancing Eagle and Eric Martin. Supersuckers’ first CD release came in 1992, and consisted of singles they had recorded for various indie labels.
Led by guitarist Davin Kangas, South Lake Tahoe-based Cash Only Band regularly makes the rounds of local watering holes with its mix of country, rock and outlaw genres.
Tahoe Blue Vodka will offer drink specials throughout the night.
The event is 21+, and advance tickets are available for $15 in person at The Spot and Whiskey Dicks Saloon, or online at http://www.ticketweb.com.
Whiskey Dicks Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
