About The Event
The Dead & Down
The band envelopes the thoughtful and inscrutable songwriting of Taylor Burlage in a blanket of sound descended from outlaw country, psych rock, and a few too many beers. Influenced by the likes of John Prine, Pink Floyd, The Raconteurs, and Sturgill Simpson ,The Dead & Down has formed a unique sound and they will take you on a journey; moments of psychedelia and pure, unadulterated rock and roll balanced with a classic country feel and introspective songwriting
Clayton Spur & The Roughstock Riders
Clayton Spur is a singer/songwriter from the range, currently living at Evan Estrada’s house. While his music has a satirical country base, you may pick up notes of rock n’ roll. Clayton has tried his hand at a multitude of activities including breaking broncos, leather work, target practice and fencing, with barbed wire and with an épée. In November 2020, he traded his six-gun for a six-strings. Evan helped him record take after take to send to his old friends Slick Ric in Austin, TX and Dusty Rattler in Seattle, WA. While they were recording on their own, Clayton and Evan also recorded electric guitar from Sagebrush Sam in Helena, MT. Two years later, and with the help of some other cow-people laying down some hot banjo, loud drums and warm autoharp, Evan collected the tracks and mixed Clayton Spur and the Roughstock Riders’ debut album, Bucka Bucka Forcey. Available everywhere music is…available.
