New Town Drunks, Red Hot Poker Dots, Fantastico!

When: Sat., July 10, 10 p.m. 2010

The Poker Dots approach mirrors SCOTS in the easy manner with which it moves through rockabilly, country and bluesy rock. Their versatile style gives the albums a nice flow, particularly the latest, Swampy Tonk Avenue. Frontman Ray Dee Ator's sandpaper vocals keenly contrast upright bassist Lil'Odette's bright alto. The music overflows with ramshackle charm, suggesting a thigh-slapping moonshine-fueled hootenanny that lasts until dawn. What's more, their wit's the right cross after the music's steady jab of groovy energy, unleashing humorous paeans to lesbian friends, PBR and chicken.
