Nashville Blues Society feat. Molly Gene One Whoaman Band, Ten Foot Polecats & Natural OutlawBlues
I’m no blues purist, so when I say Molly Gene One Whoaman Band’s video for her song “Waitin’ “ makes me laugh immoderately, that’s a compliment. Raised on a Missouri farm, Molly Gene plays electric slide guitar while blowing harmonica and stomping on her Farmer foot drum. A track from her 2011 full-length, Folk Blues and Booze, “Waitin’,” finds Molly Gene murdering her boyfriend — maybe she found his beard annoying — and throwing him in the river. Along the way, Molly Gene violates the rules against littering by leaving her crushed Bud Light cans in the street, then takes up with a man with an amazing mullet. Rounding out tonight’s bill are the Massachusetts trio Ten Foot Polecats, who play a variation on the style of Mississippi bluesman R.L. Burnside, and Natural Outlaw, whose postmodern twang hails the ghosts of Hank, Waylon and Gram, with a little Lou Reed on the vocal side.
