At some point in the past decade or so, country musicians decided their guitars needed to be electronically accompanied and their lyrics had to focus on drinking beer, driving pickups and chasing cliché girls. That’s a trend Jenny Don’t and The Spurs ignored, instead sticking to the genre’s roots. Lead vocalist Jenny Don’t croons about love, loss, sunsets and the open road; every word bleeds with emotion. In an age of countless straight white men in never-dirtied cowboy boots, the band’s genuine outlaw country sound is refreshing. Tonight the band performs at Howlers. Local indie rock group Ancient History, whose often-solemn lyrics and dark ambience are evocative of The National, will open. - Alex McCann
