The Gourds

11 years ago by Pete Freedman
Austin-based roots rock act The Gourds has a sound that falls squarely between the jammier efforts of the Wakarusa set and the more Americana fare of, say, the Bend Studio set. And while that certainly endears The Gourds' sound to both crowds, it also places it just outside of each...

The Gourds

13 years ago by Noah W. Bailey
Austin, Texas band the Gourds are the quintessential Lone Star ensemble, the type of group tailor-made for Gruene Hall and every outdoor festival from Fredericksburg to Nacogdoches. Their seventh proper album, Heavy Ornamentals, may be their most dance-hall friendly yet, a hip-shaking mix of funky backwoods stompers and country tear-jerkers...

The Gourds

14 years ago by sam Machkovech
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...

The Gourds

15 years ago by Darryl Smyers
Mistakenly thought of as a novelty act after their infamous psycho-bluegrass makeover of Snoop Dogg's classic "Gin and Juice," the Gourds have nonetheless released a series of compelling, whacked-out alternative country efforts for 10 years. Blood of the Ram continues in the same tradition, with top-notch playing, rough-hewed singing and...

Gourd Jog

11 years ago by Mark Hughes
When some of us here at Night & Day hear "Valley Ranch" we're thinking more about condiments, not athletics. But hey, it takes all kinds, and we understand there are people who crave electrolytes, not dippin' sauce. So, if you're the kind who likes to jog or run there's the...

This Gourd's for You

13 years ago by Rich Lopez
I hope I haven't missed the yearly presentation of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Even as a thirtysomething, there's a certain nostalgia that I gladly suffer watching it. And each time, my heart always goes out to poor Linus. Whether it's suffering at the hand of his verbally abusive...

Get Off on Gourds

8 years ago by Patrick Williams
Really? There are still kids today who would enjoy posing in a version of Cinderella's magically transformed carriage? Thought they'd all be busy killing things in Gears of War 3. Amazing what we don't know about children (damn restraining order). If your little princess -- or prince, we're not judging...

The Gourds Keep On Keeping On

10 years ago by William Michael Smith
"Literate roots party music" is how Kevin "Shinyribs" Russell describes The Gourds: "We're Bill Burroughs meets Jerry Lee Lewis at the funeral of Robert Johnson on the Millennium Falcon piloted by Joe Strummer and Neil Young." The Gourds have been around since the summer of 1994, when members of Picket...

Rock Gods, er, Gourds

12 years ago by John Freeman
Pretentious. Self-indulgent. Sell-outs. Bald. The Smashing Pumpkins have been called all these things and so much more. Bob Mould from Hüsker Dü himself once referred to the Pumpkins as "the grunge Monkees." This was not always the case, however. Way back in the early 1990s, the Smashing Pumpkins were purveyors...
