Full review to follow. A honkytonkin' good time from these Texas troubadours, playing songs new and old. There was some good stuff from their post-reunion albums, but for now, let's soak in the songs they wrote the first time around. They got things moving in a six-piece roadhouse configuration, but for me some of the best moments came when they stripped it back to just three guitars and three voices, swapping verses back and forth like they were hanging out on a back porch, or giving a masterclass in how to craft a song.


  1. This is fantastic. Thanks a lot for sharing! Any chance of getting a copy/download of the full set? One of the best and favourite concerts I've been to.


    1. Yes, I can certainly share the whole show, but it will be a while before I'll have time to get to it. Shoot me an email and I'll get it your way in time.
