TECHNICALLY, there are six (!!!) bands playing at The Jinx on Saturday: Damon and the Shitkickers have their usual happy hour set, and at night, it’s a rockabilly/old-school garage-punk rampage with Rocket 350, Jimmy and the Teasers, and Dusty Booze and the Baby Haters.
But right there in the middle, that gap where the Shitkicker crowd meanders out and the evening crowd slowly creeps in, is Alex Culbreth.
Culbreth is a fitting act to follow our favorite happy hour outlaws; his 2012 album Heart in a Mason Jar is just straight-up, good country music. Comprised of sleepy toe-tappers that mull over troubles with a glass of whiskey. Culbreth watches the seasons pass with a sharp eye and seasoned wit.
Take heed, all y’all who complain about shows not starting ‘til 11, 11:30: Culbreth kicks off at 9 p.m. sharp, plays ‘til 10, and the evening show kicks off after that.
Plenty of time to get a nice dinner nearby and still catch some live music!
