TRUCK STOP CONFIDENTIAL / BOXCAR RADIO / SLIM CHANCE & THE CONVICTS

*****************************************************************************

Truck Stop Confidential

Bona Fide Americana from Atlanta GA

Boxcar Radio

Boxcar Radio may be the best band in the ATL that nobody has heard of. They have quietly dropped a couple of EP’s and played a very selective 5 gigs since their forming in 2014. They’re kind of a stealth super group of sorts…. seasoned professionals in the local Atlanta music scene with band members that have been in countless projects. This lineup spun off a Gram Parsons Son Volt type tribute act with a lot of the first original songs written for that project. The sound is a little Ryan Adams with a dose of Wilco and some Jason Isbell on the side. With two solid EP's including the more alt-country just dropped "Derailed" under their belt with the help of Sugarland's Producer; Boxcar Radio's great songs, great players, and great harmonies make this band the true sleeper in the Americana scene.

Slim Chance & The Convicts

Atlanta's original Redneck Underground country band - still going strong after 28 years! Formed in 1986 in order to keep GSU psychology grad students Slim & Dan from going crazy (along with Tony on drums), the Convicts quickly made a name for themselves by playing a veritable cornucopia of musical sytyles, most within the framework of traditional country music. With three albums and another on the way soon, the two time "Creative Loafing's Best Country Band" were instrumental in the creation of the storied Redneck Underground, a local scene that continues to this day. From the earliest shows at Georgia Retardation Center to the Austin Avenue buffet,the White Dot, Ray Lee's, the Point,and the Star Bar, the mighty Convicts have also played such notable venues as Variety Playhouse, Lakewood Amphitheater, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Tootsie's orchid Lounge in Nashville, and many others. Many members have come and gone over the years, but a Convict show is always an evening of entertainment, filled with classic sounding and edgy original tunes, and a plethora of cover songs we love to play. As the Convicts start their 29th year, the future looks good. We hope you will be a part of it.
