The Donkeys in Reno with Josiah Wolf

Posted in Uncategorized by Extradition Music on May 20, 2010

Alt-Country music can’t be pinned down to a specific sound.  That is the persistent debate within the community of followers, and it is one that is impossible to settle.  Extradition Music, Reno’s very own form of Alt-Country music, is equally uncategorizable, the only difference being that we believe that it happens to be alt-country that is particularly perfect for our favorite city: Reno. 

Over the years, bands have reinterpreted the non-Nashvile sound in many different ways.  John Doe and the Sadies, who we brought to town last year, were old, old country, with a little bit of punk thrown in, befitting the styles of the two groups that formed.  Wayne Hancock and Lucky Tubb played old honky tonk classic sounds for us this year, Las Vegas’ The Clydesdale player their Rockabilly/Punk sound for us.  Of course, there are the homegrown artists too: The Saddle Tramps, Hellbound Glory, Leroy Virgil and the Loaded Dice, Richmond Fontaine, James Haddock, Jr., Buster Blue, and so many more, all of whom represent different pieces of the alt-country, or more appropriately, Extradition music Spectrum.

In this vein, we are eager to bring you The Donkeys on June 1st.  They are an outgrowth of the country-rock/folk-rock bands of the ’60s and ’70s like The Byrds, Gram Parsons’ various outfits, and others, and we are more than excited to bring them to a Reno audience.  Listen to them on MySpace here.

And check out this video of them playing “Excelsior Lady” off of their newest album:
