Roots Hoot House Concerts turns our Peace Dale music space into a true honky tonk on Saturday, October 19, when J.P. Harris & the Tough Choices bring their 100-proof brand of hardcore C&W to the house. J.P. and his band play Country Music. Period. No "pop-," "alt-," "rock-," "folk-," etc. prefixes. Sick and tired of the modern Pop-Country filth broadcast shamelessly and persistently across our beautiful countrysides, The Tough Choices set out to right the wrongs done to a music so classically and quintessentially American. As we speak, Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Carl Smith, and countless other champions of Honky Tonk are rolling in their graves, groaning with disgust over the watered-down contemporary excuse that the "Country" music industry presents us for music. Save a few Randy Travis gems and Alan Jackson hits, this flim-flam is pathetic, at best. When The Tough Choices began, there were only two rules: keep it country, and keep it simple. They have done both, yet still weave burning pedal steel leads and painfully genuine guitar solos with the cool calm of a Spaghetti-Western Clint Eastwood. Just a single listen to the band's latest album on Cow Island Records called I'll Keep Calling and you'll know what we mean. Don't miss out! This is a BYOB/potluck show which means terrific food to go with an afternoon/evening of great music. Sounds like win-win to us.
