JEFF YOUNGER PRESENTS vol 38:The Andre Chrys 40th Birthday Bash

Joseph Blood and the Bluetick Houn' Dogs are a hard hitting, shoot from the hip rock n roll bonanza. Somewhere between Gram Parsons and Mike Ness, Joseph Blood brings a maelstrom of punk influenced boozy psycho-country wherever he goes. Let's just call it rock n roll baby. You may have heard of it.

The WhiskeyDicks:
A a raving group of Celtic Gypsy Punk Rockers who have a throbbing reputation as "One Hell of a Good Time". They began outside a liquor store when a couple of friends set out to earn money to spend at the liquor store by playing music about liquor in front of said liquor store. Yes, many members of the WhiskeyDicks are from the Yukon, and they live by a fistful of simple mottos: Stand Back, Drink Up, Hit It Hard and Get 'er Done. They blast their way through traditional tunes and modern hits with the spirit of the mad and the thirst of a sailor who just got kicked out of his metal band, and it is quite simply impossible to have a bad time with them in the room.

The Georgia Straight said: Andre Chrys is a singer-songwriter with a taste for the sort of barstool wisdom and dirty-old-town laments that used to be the sole domain of Tom Waits. The lyrics of "Guardian Angel (You've Been Drinking on the Job)", for instance, are cute in a way that the author of "The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)" might appreciate, even if the title gives everything away. "The Modification Song" is equally clever, with its observations of our constant drive--and utter failure--to perfect ourselves.

** Also, Rail Ale Tuesday: every Tuesday at 5 PM we offer a different cask of craft beer. Check our website or Twitter for updates on what the cask will be each week and come down for the cask tapping!
