Langhorne Slim - "Rebel Side Of Heaven" Video

Last night I walked into the Crystal Ballroom a little early for the Builders and the Butchers, but just in time to catch the last few songs of Langhorne Slim's set. Although I hadn't heard him before, he hooked me with a couple folky barnburners. Lucky for me, he's playing again tonight for FREE at Rontoms at 8 PM, along with Blitzen Trapper's Marty Marquis and Y La Bamba. You can bet I'll be there for the whole set this time.

I don't think he played this song while I was there last night, but it gives you an idea about his sound. Or you can listen to "I Love You But Goodbye" (mp3) from Be Set Free, coming out on the 29th.
