Lambchop - Grey Eagle - 2/14/2009

If you are looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift this year, look no further than Lambchop at the Grey Eagle in Asheville.

Although Kurt Wagner's ever evolving 12 piece collective is most often given the "alt-country" tag, with each successive release they further defy classification. Early works like Thriller and Nixon do show the band's Nashville roots, but later releases have found them making lush, atmospheric music that sounds more like an Appalachian form of ambient, albeit chillout music with soul-crushing lyrics.

I have posted two of my favorite Lambchop tracks. The first from 2000's masterwork, Nixon. The second from 2006's somber Damaged.

The last time me and crew saw Lambchop at the Eagle, the entire audience ended up on stage running around like it was an old school hootenanny, while the band churned through "Your Fucking Sunny Day". I am sure this time around you should expect no less.

Tickets for the show are $10 in advance. hope and anchor open.
