We’ve been big fans of Blackfoot Gypsies for what feels like an eternity, and are super excited that they’ll be playing their second hometown show within two weeks this Saturday, August 1st, at The Basement East. They debuted some great new tunes last week at The High Watt, so we can’t wait to hear what they have in store for this weekend. Also playing are rockabilly band Hillbilly Casino, rocking two piece, The Smoking Flowers, and Lonesome Town Drifters. Things get started around 9pm, and tickets will run you $7 at the door.
Blackfoot Gypsies bring something different to every show they play. Always exciting, anything could happen, and never something you want to miss, their show at The Basement East this weekend is sure to be a good one. We got to interview the band a few months ago when their latest album, Handle It, came out and we’re excited anytime these frequent travelers are playing a hometown show.
Nashville natives Hillbilly Casino have released three full length albums, all DIY and produced and engineered by the band. They take inspiration from a wide range of music and play a mixture of rock and roll, rockabilly, psychobilly, and honky tonk. Have a listen to “Tennessee Stomp” below to get a taste.
THE SMOKING FLOWERS
Husband and wife duo The Smoking Flowers play a rich blend of country, rock, and blues, with each song pulling on a different influence and sound, while still managing to seem natural. Oscillating between the different genres, The Smoking Flowers manage to sound entirely themselves, even when they’re covering classics, like “The Boys Of Summer” below.
LONESOME TOWN DRIFTERS
Lonesome Town Drifters are another Nashville based band. They have a punk sound and recently opened for Swingin’ Utters at The End. Get familiar with what should be a solid kick in the pants to get things started below.
Blackfoot Gypsies, Hillbilly Casino, The Smoking Flowers, and Lonesome Town Drifters will perform Saturday August 1st at The Basement East. The show is 21+, begins at 9 p.m., and tickets are available for $7 at the door.
