Country punk with a sting
COUNTRY/folk/punk singer-songwriter Austin Lucas, raised in the backwoods country of Monroe County, Indiana, plays the Wasp Factory in Lismore, tonight.
With songwriting credits on two of Allison Krauss' albums, he learnt to harmonise before learning to read, honing his vocal control as a member of the nationally acclaimed Indiana University Children's Choir. Years on the road with punk bands segued back to his country roots and now, with four albums under his belt and a recent spot on Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown tour, he's touring Australia.
With support from fellow North American PJ Bond and Melbourne's Jamie Hay, the show starts at the Wasp Factory, 41 Casino St, at 7pm. Tickets $7 at the door.
