For some bands, touring is a natural state of being. This is absolutely true for Louisiana's Cowboy Mouth, as the quartet comes through Denver tonight on it's 16th annual "Mardi Gras tour." Making country-twinged pop-rock since 1990, the band pulls from influences like The Clash -- heard loud and clear in its tribute "Joe Strummer" -- to create its own brand of blues-friendly rock n' roll with a goofy lyrical twist.
The band has produced almost as many live albums as studio work, and though radio airplay has been fairly elusive, Cowboy Mouth has found a devoted fan base across the U.S. Cowboy Mouth is currently on tour with Southern friends Dash Rip Rock, a rockabilly band with a deep history equally rooted in the Louisiana scene. This show is sixteen and up with tickets running $25-30. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9 p.m.
