Music Scene: Aug. 3-9
What genre of music goes best with a straight road and a long drive?
Imagine yourself behind the wheel on that very road as you listen to The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit from Oakdale, Calif., performing Friday, Aug. 3, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.
“Take two Americana singer-songwriters, an indie-rock veteran of a drummer, country-born bassist, and metal-bred pedal steel player, and what do you get: the rough-hewn yet driftwood-smooth; rebel-headed, but heart-of-gold sound of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit,” is how the band describes itself on the bio at http://www.reverbnation.com/tgltso.
Singer-songwriters Chris Doud and Will Taylor, bassist Taylor Webster, drummer Aaron Burtch, and “master of all lead instruments, Matt Cordano have been likened to anything from Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Bros. to Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Wills and even Neil Young,” the bio notes.
Doors open 8 p.m., and the show starts at 9 p.m. with guest Kyle Harvey. Tickets are $10 for the 21-and-older show.
Gas for the road trip is extra.
Call 241-1717 for information.
