The Gourds

On Friday night, after Gourds singer/multi-instrumentalist Kev Russell inevitably belts out, "With so much drama in the LBC," the crowd at Poor David's will hoot and holler louder than they have for the rest of the Austin band's set. It's a damn shame that the band's novelty hit, a countrified cover of Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice," has overshadowed the rest of the down-home, deep-fried outfit's catalog. So be a good sport and pick up some Gourds records before attending the upcoming concert. There's eight to pick from, for Pete's sake, so show up knowing a song that doesn't have the words "dee oh double gee" in it.
