The Bean Pickers Union

You pull into the 7-11, kickin' gravel and squealin' tires
You want to hear The Clash, but they're playing "Frampton Comes Alive"

We last saw Chuck Melchin of The Bean Pickers Union wearing a jacket and tie while ripping through a set of vintage V-Roy's songs at the Halloween Spectacular. That got our attention, as did the copy of "Potlatch" that we picked up at the show.

If you like The Jayhawks, Uncle Tupelo and Neil Young (and of course you do, if you're reading No Depression), I'm sure you'll like the disc. There are some great alt-country rockers like "Warrior". "Independence Day" and "I'm So Sorry", as well as some nice acoustic numbers like "Bride", "Home" and "Promise". Check it out.

Upcoming shows:

Sat, 11/7/2009 9:00 PM
Rosebud Bar & Grill, 81 Summer St, Somerville, MA
Preacher Jack WITH VERY SPECIAL Guests: Chuck Melchin (of the Bean Pickers Union) and guests and also Bryan Pero and the Tired Horses.

This looks like a great Davis Square double-bill, with Eillen Jewell playing 7:00-8:30 at Johnny D's.

You should go. I should go.
OK, I'll see you there...
