Indie and western duo the Lonesome Heroes came to our attention when their guitarist and singer Rich Russell shared some of his teriffic photos of the Lonely Wild's show at South By Southwest in Austin this spring. One of the best things about being part of the music community is that you can reach out to someone as a photographer and it turns out that he his own excellent band and--extra bonus--the other half of the duo is a talented and inventive visual artist, too. This Saturday May 26 the Lonesome Heroes play the Echo Country Outpost along with perennial RFSL favorites The Western States Motel and Olentangy John. Lonesome Heroes' singer/dobro player Landry McMeans has a weeklong exhibiton of cardboard relief art works at the Outpost from May 21-27. Set times are: 6pm-Art reception/ BBQ, 8pm- Olentangy John, 9pm-Lonesome Heroes 10pm- Western States Motel
The Lonesome Heroes come to Los Angeles as part of a three week tour in support of their debut full-length Daydream Western, a deserted highway stretch of country-tinged indie rock winding through the places in between Brooklyn and Texas.
