{SXSW Preview & Honky-Tonk Friday} with Heybale

Heybale named their latest record The Last (Great) Country Album without a hint of irony or sarcasm. That’s saying something. Heybale is a group of Austin’s finest pickers and players led by the timeless Redd Volkaert.

I wrote about the band here first when their record came out. They’ll be playing both Friday and Saturday night but you should probably try to catch them at the Continental Club, it’s their home away from home.
