Leon casino, His folksy honky tonk sound feels about as Texas as two stepin’. Listeners prepare for a lot of rhythmic guitar paired with the twangy, scratchy, soothing voice of Carll. The music ranges from slower story telling to boot stomping ho down jams. Clips of Hayes Carll’s SXSW performance of Stomp and Holler can be found at this link.
At the House of Blues, Friday December 28th, Hayes Carll is putting on Hayes Carll’s Burlesque Circuis and Sideshow Freakout and he’s expecting you to dress up. At his recent Cactus Music appearance he explained how he likes to throw big theme parties, but has been disappointed in the past with the lack of participation. Apparently, he’s the guy to talk to if you need a toga for an Animal House style concert. Yet this has not deterred him from throwing theme concerts, like his Circus and Sideshow Freakout Concert coming up in Houston. After all that holiday family time, your inner freak must be dying for a breath of fresh air and the Hayes Carll concert is perfect timing. So wear your freakiest, gnarliest, sexiest badass costume you can put together, or simply be entertained by those brave enough to do so. There will be prizes for the best costumes, so nearly naked girls will be rewarded formally. Doors open at 8 pm, and the show starts at 9 pm.
