Whitey Morgan & the 78's

When: Fri., Jan. 30, 9 p.m. 2015

If you're a fan of classic outlaw artists like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, or even more modern country artistslike Sturgill Simpson, honky-tonk quartet Whitey Morgan & the 78's will be right up your alley. Hailing from the hard-luck city of Flint, Mich., Whitey Morgan & the 78's play a style of hard-edged honky-tonk music that's filled with twangy guitar, smoke-cured vocals, and lyrics about heartache and blue-collar pride, as heard on the band's 2010 self-titled album. But to be truly immersed in the live Whitey Morgan & the 78's experience (you know, besides attending this show), check out Born, Raised & Live From Flint—released in December—a rough and raw collection of songs recorded in their hometown. Joe Fletcher is also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
