Local indie/alt-country band The Famous release their second album Come Home to Me this Thursday at Cafe Du Nord. The band describes the new album as a “blast of indie rock fused with hard-edged Americana that continues in the direction established on their debut, while venturing into fuzzed-out garage-blues, New Orleans swamp jazz, and Tex-Mex flavored surf.” For the record release, they’ll be joined onstage by Joe Goldmark (pedal steel) and jazz trombonist Charlie Wilson, both guest musicians on this newest 11-tracker.
In addition to making their new CD available for the first time, The Famous have generously declared that a portion of the proceeds from the Du Nord show will go to a very good cause: the fight against the restrictions felt by local venues via the CA Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). As we’ve written before, it’s an important fight and a cause definitely worth supporting.
Local bands Billy & Dolly and 20 Minute Loop bookend the show. 8:30pm, $10, 21+.
