Sour Bridges reminds me of a burst of something good. Just…BAM. The music jets like a runaway train with no brakes. And, if you’ve not had the pleasure of such back porch musical revelry, you get this sudden realization: That’s what a hootenanny’s supposed to be like. Duh!
The local quintet describe what they do as “browngrass,” something quite like bluegrass with those heavy Appalachian influences, but a bit dirtier, more gritty, mixed with traditional Texas folk, indie and rock ‘n’ roll. This would be Americana gone wild. To top it all off, they’ve got some of the best vocal harmonies around.
Be expecting a new album from Sour Bridges, Catfish Charlie, coming out in August. Meanwhile, you can see Sour Bridges play tonight at midnight at The White Horse, 500 Comal St., following the most wicked blues rock around by Mrs. Glass at 10 p.m. And, if you miss tonight’s show, you can check out Sour Bridges at their Thursday night Browngrass Social at the Scoot Inn, 1308 E. 4th at Navasota. If that isn’t enough, catch them at Holy Mountain, 617 E. 7th St., this Sunday.
Dang. Get you some. Recommended.
