Playbill: The Von Ehrics
Their 2006 release The Whiskey Sessions is scratchy and thrashy, built on macho attitude, meth-augmented testosterone, and clouds of cigarette smoke tainted with that sweet smell of homegrown. They've recently completed an ambitious tour that took them from Austin to Atlanta to Philly and back down through the Midwest, and even staged a CD release show in l'il ole New York City at Hank's Saloon. They're regular openers for the likes of Reverend Horton Heat and Supersuckers, and songs like "Rock Track for the Kids," "Tallboy," "East Nashville Softshoe," and "Dirt Track Race Car Driver" make it easy to see why. - William Michael Smith
