Bakersfield, Norway

No, there’s not a town called Bakersfield.  There is, however, a Buck Owens tribute band from Norway called Bakersfield.  The far reaching strings of the Bakersfield Sound have reached Norway.  And they sound pretty damn good too.  Bakersfield will be playing in Bakersfield this coming Friday and Saturday at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace.  If you’re in Bakersfield or the area, it should be worth checking them out – and getting yourself a chicken fried steak.
