Shinyribs bring funky alt-country to The Palms on Thursday

From page A7 | September 11, 2013 |

Shinyribs — headed by Kevin Russell of The Gourds — recently released their second album “Gulf Coast Museum” and will play some of their new stuff Thursday, Sept. 12, at The Palms.

Austin-based Matt the Electrician will open the show. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $15.

Shinyribs is both a four-piece alt-country/Americana band featuring the musical wanderings of Kevin Russell of The Gourds and Russell’s sometimes alter ego for solo projects. Shinyribs (Russell solo) opened for The Gourds at The Palms several years ago, and this week Shinyribs (the quartet) is headlining a show of high-energy music that comes from the intersection of country and the jam-band scene.

Shinyribs also allows Russell to stretch out as a performer and bandleader. A noticeable progression in quality has been evident in his recordings and shows with this group since he began it back in 2008. He began performing once a month at a venue called, Under The Volcano. And within two years he had formed the group of people and songs that would stay in place through this very day.

Shinyribs first recording, “Well After Awhile,” was released to critical acclaim in 2010 on Nine Mile Records.

Shinyribs is Russell (lead vocals, electric and acoustic guitar, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica), Keith Langford also of The Gourds (drums), Winfield Cheek (piano and organ) and Jeff Brown (bass).

Opening is Austin singer-songwriter Matt the Electrician, whose songs harken of two other Texas greats, Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, and whose new CD is titled “Muddy Waters.”

Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com, shinyribs.org and matttheelectrician.com.
