Scott H. Biram

Saturday, November 19, at Gypsy Tea Room

If you can't see the inherent irony of truck-crash survivor 
Scott H. Biram wearing a trucker cap in concert, then you 
probably won't enjoy his show.
If you can't see the inherent irony of truck-crash survivor Scott H. Biram wearing a trucker cap in concert, then you probably won't enjoy his show.

On March 25, 2003, Scott H. Biram was severely injured in a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler, his truck run over by a careless driver talking on his phone. For a guy so enamored with trucker culture, it would have been a fitting way to go, but miraculously, he was back onstage at Austin's Hole in the Wall a few weeks later, shouting his way through a rough-and-tumble set of dirty country-blues while confined to a wheelchair, an IV hanging from his arm. Two and a half years later, he's touring behind The Dirty Old One Man Band, his first album for nationally distributed Bloodshot Records. While better known for raspy punk-blues songs like "Blood, Sweat and Murder," Biram's also capable of moving hillbilly folk à la Townes Van Zandt, as evidenced by the oughta-be-a-classic "Lost Case of Being Found."
