With a name like Langhorne Slim, you know exactly what this guy sounds like before you even hear him... gangsta hip-hop straight from the urban jungle.

Actually, NYC's Langhorne Slim, as his moniker suggests, plays old-time countrified blues with punk rock edge. He is a man seemingly from another era; a traveling old world troubadour with an acoustic guitar, banjo, harmonica and hat acting as his only luggage. This is Americana music that makes you want to stomp your feet and get wasted to. Doesn't "Lorretta Lee Jones" just sound like the name of a great drinking song?

For fans of Two Gallants, Towns Van Zandt and the Great Depression.

Langhorne Slim plays the El Rey Theatre, on Saturday, August 11th.
