Enjoy honky-tonk at Cooper’s tonight

From 8-11 p.m. tonight, Glen Earl Brown Jr. and The Dickens play pre-1970 Nashville and Bakersfield-style country and honky-tonk made famous by legends such as Ray Price, Johnny Cash, The Louvin Bros, George Jones, Buck Owens, Graham Parsons and Merle Haggard, as well as modern acts like Junior Brown, Br-549, the Deraliers and the Mavericks.

Comprised of four unique, fully seasoned (aged 40 to 65) authentic musicians, the group captures the essence and soul of this great music.

Dave Gonzalez of the Hacienda Bros calls Brown “A real modern day honky-tonk hero.”

So if you hanker after the sound of a bygone era made famous by shows like “Ranch Party” and “Hee Haw,” The Dickens are for you. $3 cover.
