When: Fri., Sept. 10, 9:30 p.m. 2010
This is where three brothers—Sam, James and Abe Wilson—and two friends (bassist Seth Green and drummer Todd Wellons) convene for a rocked-up take on roots music. When it came time for a name, the Wilson Brothers decided to pay tribute to their father, a songwriter and a professor. Makes sense, then, that the quintet's sound suggests a lot of time spent studying the song work of alt-country faculty such as Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown and the Old 97s. But the guys go at it with such sweat and abandon, it seems but a matter of time before the students become the teachers. With The Apache Relay.
