Friday Night's Big Show

Time for promotion of one of the Wigshop’s favorite artists, Drew Holcomb:

This Saturday, for one night only, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors will be playing the Historic Patrick Sullivan’s Upstairs. This Memphis Native, Knoxville Graduate, and Nashville Transplant just happens to be one of the great folk, blues, rock, Americana, Neo-punk, underground-classical mix artists to come out of Tennessee in the past decade.
But seriously, Drew is an incredibly talented musician who has spent the past few years traveling all around the country doing what he loves and living his dream of making a wage from playing a gig.

Drew is accompanied by his wife Ellie, whose sultry, silky, and gripping sound complements the blues-rock style of Drew’s music perfectly. His band the Neighbors is a hard working, skilled, and entertaining group that is sure to please any music snob.

I’ve seen Drew and his group in action many times and am always pleased. The show starts at 9 with local talent Ben Bannister opening. It’s an 18+ show and well worth your time. Most of the Wigshop crew will be there so don’t be shy. Say hi, we don’t bite, and we’d love to know who actually reads this stuff.

Oh yeah and Write in Spellings August 7th.

i was right there with you until "neo-punk, underground-classical." i think you should probably leave the genre interpretations to stan. that being said, i'm look forward to seeing him and ben on friday.
