ALT-COUNTRY | Western Centuries


Just by its very existence, Seattle's Western Centuries rages against what claims to be country. It's a no-frills affair that still runs deep. The band moves musically to and fro like a night train to Memphis, and the shift between honky-tonk and Countrypolitan is seamless with fragments of other influences doing laps in the soup.

Western Centuries plays Thursday, May 24, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8 p.m. $10.;
