As a follow up to Sinister Bedfellows debuting in The Blotter, there will be a Blotter Benefit concert at The Cave in Chapel Hill, NC this Thursday night featuring The Standbys.

With energetic, foot-tapping rhythms, dynamic soprano vocals, and chiming guitars featuring plenty of twang, the group has created a bright, melodic sound that veers between country soulfulness, rock abandon, and pop fun. The band performs its own material — characterized by a focus on tight songcraft — along with the occasional cover or traditional tune.

I will be there, pretending to help and signing copies of The Blotter if anyone actually wants one. Otherwise, I'm just getting in free... Should I wear my cowboy hat with my kilt?

Won't you come hang with me?
