Extradition music adds shows to summer line-up



Extradition Music has two upcoming shows this weekend that offer something for every fan of alt-country music.  First up on Friday night is “punk country” band The Clydesdale, whose diverse musical influences run the gamut from Depeche Mode to Led Zeppelin to Johnny Cash.  Saturday night brings the vintage Honky Tonk sounds of Lucky Tubb and the Modern Day Troubadours.  Tubb, the great-nephew of country music legend Ernest Tubb, demonstrates with his music that authenticity is hereditary.  Opening for Lucky Tubb are local alt-country rockers Hellbound Glory, who have coined the term “Scumbag Country” to describe their unique mix of Honky Tonk, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, and Outlaw Country.

ABOUT EXTRADITION MUSIC: Extradition Music is not a style or a sound.  It is about a place, a place that has a long lineage in the annals of Outlaw Country, Alt-Country, Americana, and Roots Rock music.  Reno has been the home of the fictitious crimes as sung by Johnny Cash and Woody Guthrie; the rambling of Tom Waits, The Grateful Dead, and Merle Haggard; and the home of acts like Hellbound Glory, The Saddle Tramps, and Richmond Fontaine.  Reno is where their characters run to when they want to break the law, and run from when the deeds are done.  Extradition Music aims to bring this cast of bad men, led by the great Johnny Cash himself, back to Reno to face the music.
