BOY HOWDY!: More Athens-bred pure country with The Howdies Sept. 24.
Sunday September 24, 2023 09:00 PM EDT
Cost: $14.46+
CRITIC’S PICK: There is a resurgence of classic country coming from down the road in Athens lately. Between The Pink Stones and these guys, it’s the early 70s all over again with The Howdies’ combination of New Riders of the Purple Sage melodicism, the Burrito Brothers’ dedication to keeping it real and the lonesome, ornery and mean style of Waylon Jennings. Plus they have the support from the high profile likes of the Drive-By Truckers and producer Dave Barbe. In other words, they’re on their way. - Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

The Howdies are an Athens custom, an unheralded aspect of life in this small college town with a big music scene. €œThat’s why we took the name,€ says Austin Darnell, who also sings, writes songs, and plays guitar in the Howdies. €œIt’s a wink and a nod to something that feels so specific to this place.€
