Have Gun, Will Travel #1402

Matt Burke of Have Gun, Will Travel has been around the block with label and indie success with his bands over the years. As his previous band saw critical and airplay success, but not a comparable financial reward, his songwriting took a different turn and he forged ahead with Have Gun, Will Travel — initially a solo effort to let the new sounds have a platform, but ultimately becoming a band in itself. HGWT plays extensively throughout the Southeast and will reach much more of the nation this year, with runs joining Shooter Jennings, Railroad Earth, Country Fried Rock alum, Matt Woods and also The Whiskey Gentry, and Radiolucent. Burke is a talented songwriter and the band balances fun, upbeat music with more reflective tracks, not descending too much into SBM that is prevalent in the genre right now. Grab some friends, and go see Have Gun, Will Travel.

The Defibulators #1340

Nope, that’s not a misspelling! The Defibulators appreciate the aural pleasures, not just in their music, but in their name and album titles, as well. Debt’ll Get ‘Em is as fun to say as it is to hear. Bug Jennings and his cast of merry players bring together solid instrumentation with intelligent lyrics and have enough fun to brighten a drive on the New Jersey Turnpike on a holiday weekend. (Okay, maybe that’s just my personal experience over Thanksgiving…) The Defibulators hang out with a cast of our alumni, including recent features The Whiskey Gentry and upcoming features, Have Gun, Will Travel. Catch them on the road and grab their sophomore album HERE on Amazon or The Defibulators HERE on iTunes.
