Brian Wright

Join us for night one of this mini-residency with Brian Wright. "When people ask what I sound like I usually say I'm somewhere between Woody Guthrie and the Velvet Underground," says Wright. It's true-along with hints of Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark fused with a bluesy slide guitar and simple but enchanting Paul McCartney-like bass. Also appearing: local artist Coyote Kolb.

Today, when too much space is spent talking about what is going to happen to the music business, Brian Wright and the Waco Tragedies are like thieves in the night, sneaking into town to steal the thunder right out from under the media glare of despair. With their new album, Bluebird, released on the new Breakout Music label, the group is poised to plant a flag in their Los Angeles home—one band that isn't prepared to settle for less than greatness. The way they make that claim is at the heart of their strength.

Local act Coyote Kolb will be bringing some honest country and Americana to the show. Authentic guitar tones exchange the spotlight with the vocalist, whisking you miles from the busy city to places much simpler.
