Tucson: Thrift Store Cowboys with Amanda Shires - Tonight at Plush

Dear TTA List Members,


This is my favorite band from Lubbock, TX with the amazing Amanda “Pearl” from Nashville.  As you know, I rarely do a personal plug, but I’ll be at Plush tonight. Hope to see you there too.


All the best,

"Thrift Store Cowboys are... as comfortable in an indie club as a honky-tonk, edgy yet traditional. Call it experimental country... evokes Mazzy Star as much as Merle Haggard." - Dallas Observer

"If Sergio Leone had hired a band to soundtrack an Italian bisexual porn Western, or maybe an adaptation of Lolita set in Deadwood, Thrift Store Cowboys is the first band he'd have called." - Santa Fe Reporter

In a pairing that has been a long time coming, and which you got a little taste of at SXSW 2009, Thrift Store Cowboys and Amanda Shires are teaming up to tour the western U.S. It's been almost a year and a half since TSC has toured the west coast. Shires, meanwhile, has been on a never-ending tour of the South, the East Coast, and Europe with her touring partner and collaborator Rod Picott. In short, both were overdue to head west.

Shires will be touring in support of her fantastic sophomore release West Cross Timbers, and will perform most shows with members of TSC as her backing band. Thrift Store Cowboys, meanwhile, are touring in support of their recent 7" split with One Wolf, out earlier this year on Mt. Inadale Records. (excerpts from
