WATSON,DALE - LIVE AT THE BIG T ROADHOUSE -CHICKEN SHIT & BINGO Vinyl LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Considered Austin, Texas' official musical spokesman, Dale Watson has built a worldwide legion of fans one gig at a time, from US honkytonks to Tokyo performance halls and all points in between. Backed by his immensely talented band, His Lonestars, Dale's original songs include country classics, heartfelt ballads, dancehall two-steppers, and Tex-Mex canciones; a Dale Watson show is a high-energy mix of music framed by Dale's hilarious between-song banter. While in Texas, they've been the band behind the little-known and uniquely entertaining spectacle known as Chicken S#!+ Bingo, where a caged hen struts across a plywood board divided into numbered squares, while betting customers anxiously gather 'round, hoping the bird will drop it's mark on their chosen numeral. Live At The Big T Roadhouse is the perfect snapshot of Dale and his band live in concert at the peak of their performing prowess, all while hosting a Chicken S#!+ Bingo show at Watson's own bar in St. Hedwig, Texas. It includes his hysterical emcee banter plus Dale's improvised "commercials" for Lone Star Beer (he won't drink anything else, probably because it "whitens teeth" and is "the only beer proven to grow brain cells") set within a hot live performance of his "Ameripolitan music."
