Really. Nothing makes me feel more "Lubbock" than a Thrift Store Cowboys show.
And this weekend was no exception. I went to a Thrift Store show on Friday night and it summed up my Lubbock experience perfect:
BEAUTIFUL. LOCAL. FUN. LONESTAR. TOWNIES. COUNTRY. ALTERNATIVE. LOUD. ENERGETIC. AWKWARD. OVERALL GREAT!
Just as I can not fathom why 54 Seconds:
one of my favorite Austin bands.. is not FAMOUS yet!.. I can not imagine how the Thrift Store Cowboys are not "famous" yet either.
I guess just as most contemporary artists might live -- undiscovered these bands are one in the same. Undiscovered. I hope one day they will be. And maybe they will GET THEIRS. Just as most artists should. :D
