Patti Fiasco and The Lonesome Heroes Play Happy Hour Show Tonight at The White Horse
As you may know, I’m definitely a fan of Austin duo The Lonesome Heroes. And I also appreciate hearing music recommendations from bands that I like. So, when The Lonesome Heroes points out a group that I should give a listen to, that’s exactly what I’ll do. Recently, I got word from from them about a band called Patti Fiasco.
The Fort Collins, CO-based outfit has a strong roots and folk background coming out of Wyoming, led by the mighty vocals of frontwoman Alysia Kraft. Their style is a wonderful combination of classic country and all-out rock ‘n’ roll. You hear old-school traditional sounds mingled with crunchy rock guitar and assorted instruments not typically used to make rock (can you say “electric dobro”?). They craftily cover all ends of the spectrum with a versatile balance of electrifying pop energy and country/rootsy twang.
Patti Fiasco is on a happy hour bill with The Lonesome Heroes tonight at one of the premiere places to hang in East Austin, The White Horse, at 500 Comal St. The Lonesome Heroes go on at 7 p.m., and Patti Fiasco follows at 8 p.m. Check them both out. This one comes recommended.
