Introducing the outlaw country of The Abigails
. I opened up Spotify for a listen and immediately fell under the dark honky-tonk spell of the band's 2013 album Love and Despair. With a voice somewhere between Country Dick (RIP) and Mark Lanegan, singer Warren Thomas sings about hell and love — and sometimes both — in a smoky drawl. Most often compared to Lee Hazelwood, The Abigails perform in the appropriately dark corner of the Alibi tonight. A-town trash rockers Dirty Pillows open.
Here's a disturbing video for the band's "Satan Taps My Head."
The show's $5, music starts around 11 p.m. and this show is for those 21-and-over.
