It feels like it has been forever since the release of the last Tractor Kings album, Gone to Heaven. In the time that passed, frontman Jake Fleischli managed to assemble one of the strongest lineups in the history of his project. Despite the fact that they suffer from a Spinal Tap-like syndrome of new drummers the core members, bassist Aaron McCallister and lead guitarist Jonny Chemical (Davidson), leave most crowds mesmerized by their drone-based psych-country songs.
This Tuesday marks the end of the band’s month-long residency at the soon to be different Cowboy Monkey where they hit the stage with special guests, Tunnels, featuring the brothers Ucherek, Stephen and Creech (of The Living Blue and The Beauty Shop, respectively), drummer Brian Reedy, and the aforementioned McCallister.
The show starts at 10:00 p.m at Cowboy Monkey. The cover is a measly 5 smackers.
