Clydesdale at the Ale House

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Rail City Ale House, The Clydesdale, Uncategorized by Extradition Music on May 15, 2010

Last night we had our latest Extradition Music show  with The Clydesdale out of Las Vegas, Nevada.  They played a two-hour set last night at the Rail City Ale House to a, shall we say, intimate but appreciative audience.  This was a make-up show for us–weather kept them from coming to Reno for one of our shows back in January–and we are so grateful that we were able to take them up on the rain check.

I’ve been listening to The Clydesdale on their MySpace page since a friend from Vegas told me about them last year.  I’ve always liked their recorded sound, but I was simply blown away by what they sound like in person.  They are, without a doubt, the real thing.  They mix all of the greats–Elvis, Merle, Cash, Owens, and more–with their own unique, snarling sound for what is, in my opinion, some of the best live music I’ve seen in a very long time.

Paige Overton, the lead singer/rhythm guitarist, is probably the biggest reason for that.  She may be one of the most enjoyable singers around the alt-country scene today.  She belts out old country standards, and their new rockabilly/punk/country songs.  The rest of her band–Andrew, Jason, and Courtney–are certainly no slouches either.  They bring a personality with them that isn’t what you might think of when you think of Vegas Cowpunk. 

We certainly want to get The Clydesdale back to Reno again sometime for an even bigger audience.  They really killed it, and we really appreciate them playing an Extradition show.

Next Shows: May 14 and 15

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Leroy Virgil, Rail City Ale House, Uncategorized by Extradition Music on May 5, 2010

We had an amazing show last night.  The venue, Ole Bridge Pub, was excellent.  The sound, thanks to our friend Duke Goff, was perfect.  The bands, Richmond Fontaine and James Haddock, Jr, were everything we expected.  Most importantly, we had a great crowd.  For a free show at a small club, you are never sure how it is going to work out.  We are just blown away by how it all came together.  So thanks to you, the bands, the venue, and everyone else that made this happen.

And now, we have even more on the docket.  As mentioned many, many times before, May 14 and 15 is going to be a busy weekend.  First, we have The Clydesdale at the Rail City Ale House.  It’ll be interesting to see how this show goes.  They are a great band, and we are really looking forward to getting them in front of a Reno audience.  Then on Saturday, we are having Lucky Tubb and Hellbound Glory at The Alley, the brand new venue that just opened in Sparks.  I’m really not sure which show I’m more excited about, but for 10 bucks, that’s a lot of good country music for a weekend.

The Clydesdale – May 14

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Rail City Ale House, The Clydesdale by Extradition Music on April 21, 2010

It “sounds like the soundtrack to a western directed by Quentin Tarantino,” says Rolling Stone Magazine.  It is The Clydesdale, a honky tonk band out of Las Vegas.  The Clydesdale have a great sound, and one that is natural to Nevada.  It is exactly the kind of thing we are trying to bring to town, and we are proud to have them. 

Show details: The Clydesdale: May 14, 9:30PM at Rail City Ale House, $5 adv/$8 at the door, 21+

The Clydesdale — May 14 at the Ale House

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Rail City Ale House, The Clydesdale by Extradition Music on April 1, 2010

We tried to have this show earlier in the year, but the weather wouldn’t co-operate.  So now, we’re excited to announce that we have booked Las Vegas’s own, The Clydesdale for a show on Friday, May 14, 2010 at the Rail City Ale House.  Everyone I know down in Vegas who has seen them loves them, and so do all of their reviewers.   See below:

“Paige Overton and Co. are among the top local acts in town”
-Jarett Keene / Las Vegas CityLife 9/17/09

“This live show was one of the most unforgettable performances I’ve been to in a long time, worth seeing again and again.”
-Braeden Ellis / http://www.examiner.com 8/31/09

“Call it whatever your fancy is … country alt, y’alternative or “Punky-Tonk” as the band terms it, this quartet… kicks out powerful catchy and juicy original music.”
-By Moon London / MojoRepublik.com 2/08

“Sounds like the soundtrack to a western directed by Quentin Tarantino”

Cowbelleros–This Saturday

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Rail City Ale House by Extradition Music on March 15, 2010

For those of you who caught them opening at the Lady Luck Tattoo Festival this last weekend, this is your chance to see the band headline.  This is going to be a great show, and the beginning of a great partnership with the Ale House at Rail City.

Cowbelleros at the Ale House in Sparks

Posted in Extradition 2010 show, Rail City Ale House, The Cowbelleros by Extradition Music on March 10, 2010

We are very excited to announce a partnership with the Ale House at Terrible’s Rail City in Sparks.  For those of you who don’t know, the Ale House is an upgraded dining establishment within the Sparks casino, and they have been putting on blues and jazz nights for some time now.  Now it looks like they want to break into some Extradition Music, and of course, we are more than happy to bring in some great touring and local Americana and Alt-Country shows to their great venue.

Our first show will be headlined by The Cowbelleros, a Reno/Sparks rockabilly group.  The Cowbelleros play a mix of old-timey covers and old-timey originals.  As their bassist, Shawn Buck, told me, they are always writing new material.  They opened for us when we had Wayne “The Train” Hancock in town back in January, and were quite the crowd pleasers.  I was particularly pleased when they ended their show by singing “Folsom Prison Blues” with Wayne himself.

Here are the details:

The Cowbelleros
When: Sa, 3/20, 10pm
Price: $5.  Tickets can be purchased at the door or prior to event at Rail City in Sparks.
Ages: 21 and up
