PICKIN' AND WAYLON WITH MICKEY AND THE BOYS

UPDATE: Sirius XM Outlaw Country DJ Steve Earle celebrates the late, great Mickey Newbury and the release of the new box set "An American Trilogy" on his "Hardcore Troubadour Radio" show on Saturday 9 pm ET and replaying on Sunday 9 am ET. Tune In!

Aha, remember when Waylon Jennings had a TV show? Remember what TV is? This was way back in 1995, back when dial-up was still a thing. Back then, when we still needed tangible media. Life was slower back then and... (read more)

DISTURBING YOUR BEERS

posted July 12th, 2011

Drag City remains and forever will be the label of the people-- shooting beers, pounding shots and generally loosening up after a hard day's night in the salt (and/or coal-) mines, just like the rest of you. Our artists generally agree; if you're drinking right now, it's likely that AZITA is saddled up right next to ya, Amstel Light in hand! Especially if you're at the Rainbo Club here in Chicago, up around the bend from DCHQ. Conveniently (for her), AZITA plays a free... (read more)

ARKANSAS QUAKES FOR BONNY BILLY

posted July 8th, 2011

This guy, Bonny, he's everywhere, man. Today, catch him on NPR's All Things Considered working on a story called The Natural State, about the recent, mysterious swarm of earthquakes that have rattled the land of Arkansas. We never knew there were multiple definitions for the word "fracking," but apparently it's also something to do with extracting natural gas from deep within the Earth. This type of "fracking" may have caused these earthquakes, apparently, as you'll learn from listenin'. The... (read more)

BUY A SHIRT OR THE GINGER GETS IT!

posted July 7th, 2011

Warning: the Drag City T-shirt is now back in print, but don't try to get through customs wearing one - they're just too sick! We tried to warn this unlucky fellow, and look where he is, now. Actually, do you know where he is? This photo was sent to us anonymously and freaked us the fuck out! Last thing Drag City needs is (more) blood on its hands! Maybe we should start a relief fund for this sad chap - if anyone knows the origins... (read more)

MEETING O' THE MINDS

posted July 7th, 2011

Good Lawd!! We can't believe it's been two-plus months since The High Llamas unleashed Talahomi Way - the latest greatest chapter in the pitch-perfect discography from Sean O'Hagan and his crew - but then, what is time, anyway? To celebrate the occasion of this record existing, an occasion which never ends, we approached the mighty, mercurial VAN DYKE PARKS to have a chat with old friend Sir O'Hagan. The resulting transatlantic git-down was EPIC - more epic than a stack of High Llamas and... (read more)

RADIO FREE FLORIDA RECAP

Free Bonny Radio in the USA! Well, we'll start with Florida but Branson, Wisconsin Dells, Lake of the Ozarks — look out! Soon you too could be seeing a darkness while the Cairo Gang wonders their show all over your world. For now, enjoy the entrails from that infamous week in the panhandle of America, gathered below from radio stations across the state.

And while radio is normally purposed as a singular moment in time to be enjoyed by those in range of the "waves"... (read more)
