8:30 doors / 9:30 show
A certain veracity and bite comes from the life of an urban cowboy and this forges the fire that lives deep in the heart of Billy Wylder. Americana-Rock anthems come together with mountain sounds and city edges to meet the spirit of a storied outlaw. The songs run through history with no commitment to any specific time period but draw heavy influence from some of America's great writers including Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, Mark Twain, and David Byrne. Wylder's a punk on horseback singing songs for the people, with the people, about the people. A fine line of gritty pickers and heroes drive Billy Wylder higher and higher. Git it!
*Billy Wylder features Avi Salloway from Hey Mama/Avi & Celia joined by a boot kick crew of musical vigilantes*

"He writes poignantly about romance, innocence and the opposite poles of country vs. city life. a first-rate lyricist" Steve Morse, former music critic at the Boston Globe
