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.

Ray Hagar wrote a great piece on Extradition Music in today’s Gazette-Journal.  He get’s my name wrong, but otherwise it’s good stuff.  You can read it here.

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

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:
