Blackboot Family Band: “Goodbye Whiskey”

By: Jack Anderson

Folk and country have both maintained an air of openness, unification, and hospitality since their origins, so it’s not all that farfetched to claim a “family” even when nobody’s sharing surnames. Austin six-piece Blackboot Family Band is no exception, whose internal bonds have only grown stronger since 2016. Aside from the standard rock band instrumentation and full-band vocal duties, Blackboot adds rustic textures with banjo, lap steel, mandolin, melodica, harmonica, and fiddle.

Blackboot Family Band shares their self-produced debut full-length Stupid Habits tomorrow alongside a release show that night at Far Out Lounge. So whether you’re a teetotaler or a firm believer in thirsty Thursday, you can definitely get your heels in motion to “Goodbye Whiskey”!
