two cow garage

on friday night we headed out into that long milwaukee night to catch the cd release parties of local bands evenstar and the rebuilts. this was going down at the cactus club. little did we know that just across the street at club garibaldi was columbus ohio's own two cow garage. having only read snippets of press here and there i thought this band was made-up, a fairy-tale if you will you could tell to hipsters. 'don't be a completely useless asshole and this band will come to your town and they will burn it down'. but here they are, live and in the flesh. tits. for those of you who don't know--two cow garage are musically like early wilco with the cowpunk swagger of jason & the scorchers (minus the mega-honkytown infatuation), the southern vibe of the drive-by truckers and my morning jacket, the blues, some banjos and some fiddles. they also utilize the booze-soaked vocal stylings not unlike the mark lanegan's and the tom waits' of the world. anywho the news here is that shane, two cow's bassist, agreed to do an interview for us so look for that in the next few days. in the meantime, check out these tunes from the first and latest two cow garage records then go to their website and buy them. (also gracing the stage on this evening, that i saw, were the drams and glossary.)
