The Gourds are a good-time, honky-tonkin’ band with enough quirk and underground appeal to justify the “alternative” tag in “alternative country-rock”. The Gourds first made waves 12 years ago by performing twangy covers of Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust” and Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice”. Since then the band has thickened their sound and sharpened their songwriting with each passing year, creating some of the best roots music around.
“Things get wild at a Gourds show. Fiddle sawing, accordion flailin’ and dust rising, one dodges elbows and wild, stompin’ feet as one of Austin’s finest shows you what real broadminded American musicians can do.” -Jambase.com
