AMERICANA | The Boyd Parker Ambush

by

Singer-songwriter Nick Young burns hot. You could even say he burns daylight. With The Boyd Parker Ambush, Young mixes up originals with covers that course through the troubadour vein. There's a lot of weight swinging in there, from Johnny to Townes to Merle, dancing in there along with plenty of Nick. Honest, intense, and bona fide.

The Boyd Parker Ambush plays Friday, December 27, 9 p.m., Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $5. 232-3230. abilenebarandlounge.com; facebook.com/boydparkerambush.
