Standup guys

Wednesday offered two varieties of rockabilly: The Kingmakers play in a more traditional vein, with covers of Mystery Train, That's Allright and Drinkin' Wine Spodee-Odee and some of their own tunes, recently record at Sun Studios in Memphis. They can also fit 75% of their band on the bass player's doublewide.

Selkirk, Manitoba's Farrell Brothers are a more feral (no pun intended) outfit with a distinct strain of rockus psychobillus in their makeup. They're distinctly louder and more distortion heavy than the opener.

No word on whether or not they can fit the whole band on the bass, though they're kind of skinny, so it should be easy.
