KXCI presents Black Joe Lewis and The Honey Bears

 KXCI Presents:

 Black Joe Lewis And The Honey Bears at Plush

Saturday October 20th

Advance $14 / Door $15  Support "Discos" 21+  door at 9:00pm

 


Like his forebears, Lewis writes from direct, often bitter experience with unflinching veracity. The songs of Scandalous are littered with the debris of age-old issues: hard times and one-night stands, lying and cheating, redemption and revenge. Gritty, raunchy and real, his music is not for the squeamish, but experiencing it fully can be genuinely cathartic. "The Austin garage soul band has a few tricks up its sleeve. It would be easy for Black Joe Lewis to allow himself to become a novelty.The fact is, in a decade dominated by effects and autotune, a rough-and-tumble bluesman who howls away and plays three chords is a rarity. It’s why terms like “retro” and “throwback” got tossed around when Lewis and his group, the Honeybears, burst onto the scene in 2009 with Tell ’Em What Your Name Is!. But Lewis has always been more than a one-trick pony, and it’s never been more apparent than on his sophomore album, Scandalous." -Paste Magazine
