    What in the hell are they doing there? That sounds like an epic show.

    If I'd had any more warning, I'd be there.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Caught me off guard as well, the Woodshed is a nice place, but pretty small. Should be a close experience!

    That's what I love about Boland's shows. They tend to be in smaller venues where you can be right up close and personal with the band. He puts on a good show, as well. Here's a shot of them when they were playing New Year's Eve at the Firehouse Saloon in H-town. Mostly Comal County Blue stuff, but some of the standards were there as well.

    If I lived closer I'd be there for sure. The venue has some other good stuff planned. Mike McClure Band is on the schedule as are the Turnpike Troubadours. I really like another live music venue as you can never have too many. But the location of this one and the lack of hotels nearby make it look like a high risk endeavor if you like to have some beer with your music.

    I've never heard of them, what kind of music is it?

    Wow, those words mean nothing to me, I'm guessing it's not my thing. Small shows like that are cool though.

    I would classify it as music for those who think Nashville has lost its way. In other words, it's country music with an edge a la the old days before Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, and Taylor Swift.

    Mother Trucker, had I known about it I would have gone for sure, this always happens to me, one of my favorite bands comes to Iowa and I have no idea.

    I would love to go but I've never heard of the following:

    Jason Boland
    Stragglers
    Woodshed
    Leon

    As a result I'm having trouble deciphering what you asked. Put me down as "maybe".

    My first introduction to Texas Country. I had been in Texas less than a week at that point.

    Re: Jason Boland live in Leon tonight

    I'm just stunned that there's a music venue in Leon.

    Then, I'm stunned that an artist of their stature (not that they're huge, but they're bigger than f'ing Leon, IA) is playing there.

    Reminds me of the time David Allan Coe played Bubba's in Schley, IA (pop. ~20).
