Whitey Morgan & the 78’s

Whooowhee! Whitey Morgan & the 78’s are playing at Sam Bond’s this week, and it’s sure to be swingin’. Superficially, it’s outlaw country just the way you imagine it — twang, drawl and do-si-do — but there’s something unique about Whitey’s songwriting that’s hard to place. Take everything you know about classic country and throw whiskey all over it, and then add two parts honkey-tonk, three parts dust and a fiendish knowingness for the open roads of these United States and you might be on the right stretch of highway.

Whitey Morgan & the 78’s play 9:30pm Friday, June 14, at Sam Bond’s; $7.
