Leslie and the Badgers

Alex's Bar

There’s vengeful ghosts and wagon trains and even the founders of the 13th Floor Elevators hiding in the individual histories of Leslie and the Badgers—and you’ll hear them clearly as they show up, one by one, in these artful (but exciting!) canyon-country songs. Singer Leslie Stevens croons about tough-sad characters who blush and “aw-shucks” with a shotgun behind their back, and the Badgers are top-flight players who smile wide when they step up to share backing vocals. If you’ve heard Clarence White with Linda Ronstadt in the days when both of them were on fire, you’ll understand where we’re starting from. This is their first local show—so where else would you want to be?
Wed., Dec. 9, 8 p.m., 2009
