Country Westerns in Boston

Country Westerns

Ages 21+
Allston Boston Live Music

Country Westerns is a three-piece rock band from Nashville that

sounds nothing like its name. Drummer Brian Kotzur (Trash

Humpers, Silver Jews) and singer-songwriter-guitarist Joseph Plunket

(The Weight, Gentleman Jesse) began working on songs together in

2016, after bonding over the shared desire to be in a band in a town

full of solo artists and guns-for-hire. Following a couple of years writing

and playing shows with varying lineups, Sabrina Rush (State

Champion) joined the band as bassist. The now complete Country

Westerns recorded their debut album in New York and Nashville,

encouraged by friend and producer Matt Sweeney. Plunket’s raspy

bravado and subtle twang, his insistent 12-string guitar riffs, Kotzur’s

dynamic and metronomic drumming, and Rush’s harmonic bass

playing create hyper catchy rock songs, with lyrics that bend towards

poetry and punk rock sneer in equal measure. Their self-titled debut is

slated for release in 2020 on Fat Possum Record.
