Half-Baked

Posted By on Wed, Aug 27, 2008 at 3:12 PM

This just in from local alt-country duo-turned-supergroup (originally Burette Douglass & Bill Mullins, now also featuring Creston Lea and Steve Hadeka on bass and drums, respectively) The Lonestar Chain, which I assume is a reference to songwriter Burette Douglas' native Texas and not the character Lone Star from Spaceballs — that reminds me, does anyone want to start a hardcore band called Dark Helmet?

Anyway, the boys have a not-so-super-secret gig tomorrow night (Thursday) at The Bakery at 10:30. It should serve as a good warmup for Monday's opening slot with The Gourds (a personal favorite) at the HG Showcase Lounge. I haven't heard anything about other acts on the bill as of yet, but The Bakery is a great space. And no, I'm not really supposed to tell you where it is. If you don't know . . .

What I can tell you is that the "Ghetto Advance Copy" of Lonestar Chain's new disc is terrific, especially if you love rootsy Golden Smog-esque country-rock, which, of course, I do.
