Folk-rock duo Long Woodson, whose prolific songwriting has produced two acclaimed concept albums, will play a rescheduled CD Release Show in Dallas in March to mark the release of its second, ROBYVILLE (Robyville Records; Sept. 21, 2010).
Long Woodson, backed by its band, plays at 10 p.m. Saturday, March 12, at City Tavern, 1402 Main St. Tickets are $5; information: 214.745.1402.
ROBYVILLE details a fictional West Texas town full of misfits hiding out from mainstream America, each song written about or from the perspective of one of them. Dark lyrics, harmony hooks and gritty vocals paint a picture of survival and hope behind mandolin, Spanish and acoustic guitars, harmonica, and distorted electric guitar.
ROBYVILLE promises listeners a stimulating journey and a fascinating visit with a colorful cast of characters — with “Nikki,” “Jimi,” “Creole Man” and nine more tracks.
