It's all about triggering the "feelers" for the band Red Feather Tribe, a south Texas outfit that will play at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at The Ale House, 2531 N. 12th St.
"Sludgegrass" is how the band describes its music on Facebook, defining it as a "unique, down to earth and original sound," akin to a bluegrass, folk, dirty blues, classic country, psychedelic and grunge mash-up.
"The raw Texas cowboy lifestyle has a strong impact on the way this music and these songs flow. Throw in some Native American roots as well and you have yourself some very nature influenced souls with a passion for creating and playing music to trigger and uplift other folks' feelers," according to Facebook.
Red Feather Tribe hails from New Braunfels, Texas, a "small and inspiring river town" where it plays local pubs and popular venues. The band is currently touring the west region, making stops at venues in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming, to name a few.
Call The Ale House at 242-7253 for show information.
If Wednesday's show doesn't fit in your schedule, Red Feather Tribe's tour schedule includes a return trip to Grand Junction with a show on Saturday, Sept. 21, at Cruisers Bar.
