American Gun
11 p.m. :: $3
Art Bar :: 901 Park St.

For all you loyal IndieRocket readers — hi, Mom! — not in Columbia or for those of you who just don't know, American Gun is the Soda City's a-one indiecana act. It's also something of a supergroup, featuring current and former members of Loch Ness Johnny, Boxing Day, Petrillo Relents and The Kerouacs. The Gun's blend of rootsy, stompin' tear-in-my-beer country, swampy Americana and bluesy indie rock recall alt-country purveyors The Bottle Rockets, Uncle Tupelo graced with the lyrical forbearance of Jerry Jeff Walker. Needless to say, it's good stuff, and Todd Mathis and Donald Merckle write some of the most perfect post-Valentine's heartbreak songs this side of the millennium. Grab a beer, shed a tear and rock the fuck out.
