Not hip-hop: Outlaw Nation at Noble Savage

If you are looking for something different on your musical plate in Shreveport Friday night, try the Noble Savage, Texas St. There you'll find the alt country rock trio Outlaw Nation. The band's new cd, Tripping Wire, is being released in June by New Orleans label Ralph Records.

Outlaw Nation is touring, says Ralph Records, with ferocious country rockers Cowboy Mouth and the legendary punk/funk rockers Fishbone.

Still trippin over "What are these hip-hop guys doin' with this Neil Young and Cross Canadian Ragweed sound?" Read their explanation (you won't be surprised that these guys can play the fire out of reggae or jazz) on outlawnationmusic.net.

The Friday show starts at 9:00 pm.

As far as I can tell the Ralph Records above is not connected with the legendary label founded in San Francisco by the Residents. That said, be aware that the underground band the Residents originated in Louisiana (were all of them from Shreveport?) and are jokesters of the highest water.
