Highlonesome at Propaganda, December 26
Four-piece Highlonesome originally formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but an obsession with vintage Americana drove the band to real mountain territory: Tennessee. Now based in Murfreesboro, the group, led by frontman and songwriter Noah T., specializes in pure crying-into-beer fare. Think lots of mournful crooning paired with banjo and the occasional Southern-gothic spiritual. The foursome is joined at this post-Christmas Propaganda show by Graham Lindsey, the band's labelmate on Farmaggedon Records and a veteran of the Madison, Wisconsin, punk rock scene. These days, he specializes largely in stripped-down, rootsy singer-songwriter material à la Tom Waits and Billy Bragg.
