Thursday Night the 21st between 8pm & Midnight: SON VOLT - Honky Tonk

After basically establishing the subgenre of alt-country in 1990 with the Uncle Tupelo release of No Depression, Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar went their separate ways, Tweedy bringing his more rock-oriented influence to Wilco, and Farrar keeping the twangy side for his new band Son Volt.  This country influence has culminated in Honky Tonk, a strong homage to the Bakersfield sound (think Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.)  Tune in as Friday's Cosmic American Music Show comes 24 hours early this week!
