Reckless Kelly

9 p.m. Thursday, February 26. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room, 6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City.

Like fellow Okies Cross Canadian Ragweed, Reckless Kelly plays a brash and overdriven style of country that kicks too much shit for heavy radio rotation and calls too much bullshit on naïve notions of tradition for Americana. Led by brothers Willy and Cody Braun, the band has found a home at the neverending fraternal keggers of Austin, but last year's Bulletproof questions the point of facile, hell-raising honky-tonk escapism. With electric guitars, mandolin and biting fiddle lines, the band hauls ass across a crumbling Western landscape, laying bare all manner of false hopes, from jingoistic politics to Christian delusions. For Reckless Kelly the twang-rock road may go on forever, but the party always has an ear-ringing end.
