KEXP Suggests: Danny Barnes @ Nectar 8/30

Can’t decide between Yeasayer and Divine Fits tonight? Or either already sold out? Or just want something more rootsy than indie rock? Head over to Nectar in Fremont this evening to catch the banjo-weilding Danny Barnes pick his way through his new album, Rocket. The Austinite turned Seattlite is a veteran if not pioneer of the country punk scene — check out Bad Livers’ albums dating back to their 1994 debut, Delusions of Banjer, produced by the Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary — and since his move to the NW over a decade ago, he’s worked with local luminaries Wayne Horvitz, Bill Frisell and most recently Dave Matthews, whose ATO Records released Barnes’ last two LPs. Get a taste of his hard to pin down style below and check him out tonight at Nectar with Blackberry Bushes Stringband.
