Drop Top Lincoln at the Palisade Brewing Company

By David Goe

The Palisade Brewing Company is on it. Besides whipping up tasty brews, the Co. is also a big supporter of live music. They regularly host shows from the area's best bands like Straygrass and Lowlands (pictured) and they've also been known to help sponsor other music events like Loaded .45's CD release party at the Mesa Theater and Club. 

Up next for the Co. is the electric hillbillies Drop Top Lincoln. 

"In the time of the first world, when turtles were the only life and the sea was molten bourbon, we got drunk and decided to start a Rockabilly band," Drop Top Lincoln says on their band webpage. "The times went upon themselves until the first world was at its fullness and the sun-creature destroyed the band with fire. In that time we sobered up (briefly) and figured out we had no idea what Rockabilly was. Then the guitar player bought a Continental, then the bass player bought a sombrero. Somehow, that led to the formation of the band through exegenesis henceforth referred to as the Awesomacolypse."

Drop Top Lincoln play original music in the style of ZZ Top or George Thorogood. According to the band "we're generally rowdy and way too loud, but we make up for it by means of crossharp harmonica."

As an alternative to the Mesa County Fair, catch the band live this Friday, July 19, at the Palisade Brewing Company.
