A year or two ago, I wrote a Short List entry on a band from Detroit called Lac La Belle. The band is fronted by Jennie Knaggs (it was once known as Jennie and the Sureshots), who is backed up by a couple of heavy-hitting Fantastic Voyagers, Nick Shillace and Joel Peterson. The band plays sweet old-timey counjtry and Western swing with a bent for authenticity and sweet vocals.
Lac La Belle returns to town tomorrow (Thursday) night at Morning Glory Coffeehouse in Morningside -- the show starts at 7:30 and the Beagle Brothers and Istvan Medgyesi open. No cover per se; donations politely requested.
Also, while I've got your ear, and while we're talking about Voyagers, I might send you in the direction of Stereogum, where the kind folks there have secured a track from the forthcoming Daniel Higgs album. As you may have heard, I am kind of into Higgs. Holy Bible time, people.
