Brent Amaker and the Rodeo (AKA B.A.R.) are on tour across the United States right now, on their way to their CMJ showcase in New York. Check out the calendar and go see them in your own town.
2008 has already been a big year for the Rodeo. They spent three weeks this Spring touring Europe, they’re drawing large crowds at such renowned venues as the Tractor Tavern, their new album is coming out November 4 on Gravewax records, and the song “You Call Me the Devil” from the first (self-titled) B.A.R. album will be featured on the Showtime TV series Californication on November 2.
Of course their first album is available here. You should get it.
