Some new, some old, some Devo?

We didn’t have a theme for tonight’s show except to have fun and play as much music as we could within two hours.  There’s some good stuff out recently that may or may not fall into the west coast country theme, but it’s good and we like it.  Heck, Son Volt’s new album is called Honky Tonk and one of the cuts is “Bakersfield” and that’s a combination that has to be good!  The CD is available on March 5, but you heard it first on Bakersfield & Beyond.

And Devo?  Well, back in 1980, The Bakersfield Boogie Boys put out an EP with a cover of Merle Haggard’s “Okie From Muskogee” put to their very Devo-esque sound.  Bakersfield & Beyond!
