I first heard Thrift Store Cowboys though one of their fellow Texans, an old friend of mine from college. Their sound is ethereal and honky-tonkish.
They are playing tonight at The Mint. Check out some of their songs via their MySpace page. If you like what you hear, come join me at the Mint. They hit the stage at 10 pm.
[Shameless plug disclosure: Aforementioned friend plays guitar in Rodney Parker, which I freely admit makes him not nearly as cool as the guy who plays the banjo.]
