High Lonesome

The Porter Draw is a friend to Albuquerque's Americana scene

By Jessica Cassyle Carr
Alt.country band The Porter Draw is part of a small but prolific Americana movement that has bubbled up in Albuquerque during the past five years. Marked by an unusual amount of camaraderie, the handful of bands within it are friends who are mutually dedicated to making music in and for this town.

Music

Tight Texans

Thrift Store Cowboys is a fitting name, considering the Lubbock-based group’s fondness for kitchen-sink instrumentation. Violins, a Hammond organ, an accordion, banjos, a pedal steel, lap steels (including one rare Weisenborn, a non-resonator), a Wurlitzer and a saw are some of the gear you’ll hear live at Low Spirits tonight. Beneath the equipment, there’s a sense of the Low Lights’ moody open-road Westerns mixed with Old 97’s unhinged alt.country. Also on tour from Lubbock is the multitalented Amanda Shires. 8 p.m., $5, 21+.
