Seattle’s wiley Brent Amaker & The Rodeo, known for its invigorating live shows and Johnny Cash vibe, is a group of characters — literally. The band’s brand of country/western is as much an homage as anything, calling on the tried and true clichés of sex, booze, and rock ’n’ roll.

Its blend of hooks, hoots, and reverb has taken it around the world. Naturally, the band has encountered a few standout locations in its travels, five of which it was kind enough to share with ALARM.

    Those guys are geniunely one of the best acts touring anywhere, anytime. But I NEVER knew they already played a prison. Ultra classic. What color is the tap water in Belgium??

    Thanks Rick. Actually the tap water was clean and the service was first rate. The warden hosted us with a steak dinner following our set and we were served by inmates! What a trippy experience.
