Reckless Kelly, Gabriel Kelly

When: Tue., May 15, 8 p.m. 2012

Though they're carpetbaggers of sorts, the term is best applied geographically, not musically. Growing up, Austin transplants Willy and Cody Braun played in their dad's country swing band with their younger siblings. (Micky and Gary Braun now star in Micky & the Motorcars.) Now, Reckless Kelly skirts boundaries, pushing between earnest hat country, jangly folk and rocking Red Dirt twang as they balance heartache ballads and carpe diem party rock. Willy has a warm hearty baritone, skilled at both down-home charm and shit-kicking swagger. It's lively music that will thrill those in love with this style because they have it down, though it won't necessarily lure new listeners with originality. With Gabriel Kelly. —Chris Parker
