HONKY-TONK | Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue


Don't know about you, but the word "honky-tonk" has always meant "COUNTRY" in all caps, boots with roots, and a truly American sound routed geographically in the South for the most part. Exhibit A your honor; New Orleans' Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue. For 10 years now, this group is cliché free as it rocks to and fro' on the sawdust rave-ups, tenacious two-steppers, and even a splash of countrypolitan to give it a little lonely; as if Vanessa "Gal" Niemann's voice weren't heartbreaking enough already.

Gal Holiday plays Thursday, August 25, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $8-$10.;
