As of this very moment, the sun is shining
in Boone and it's a beautiful thing. By tonight however, the sun will have set and
you'll have no choice but to return to the friendly confines of the Boone Saloon
to eat, drink, be merry and watch the best live music in town.
Tonight's show features former
Boonie James Wallace and his band, the Naked Light, along with local openers Katterwaul.
Thursday, May 9
James Wallace & the Naked Light
10 p.m., $5
"Similar to what has often been said of Belle and Sebastian's earlier works, More
Strange News From Another Star captures a distinct vintage quality channeled
from some non-existent folk music period of decades past. Often referenced
to Paul Simon in vocal range and use of textured percussion, Wallace's writing showcases
a similar love of African music and gospel harmonies. But more often than not, his
band heads into the more ramshackle, go-for-broke qualities of the early Kinks.
A kind of rock and roll bred with cacaphony that balances eerily well beneath Wallace's
falsetto." - JW official bio
