Country in Cambridge.

Posted by Meredith Goldstein January 8, 2007 11:29 AM


We hate to brag (actually, we love it), but this past weekend, thanks to Sidekick, some Nashville rockers and some Cambridge rockers decided to be buddies. We got this note from the Billies, a country cover band that played the Kirkland Café this past weekend:

“We were between sets and the bouncer came over to me and said "Some guy from Texas or something just showed up and asked if he'd missed The Billies...". So, I introduced myself, bought him and his girlfriend a beer, and thanked them for coming. Turns out they're from Nashville and were in town for the weekend to see BodyWorlds and wanted to check out the local music seen. They saw your listing in Sidekick and said "Country music at Harvard? We got to see that." He's actually in a band down in Nashville and knew all our tunes and was surprised that people play this kind of music up here. He came up on stage and sang a song with us, which was great. So, we're going to stay in touch and head down to Nashville to see him play sometime. He kept saying: "Country music at Harvard! Wait 'til they hear about that! I can't believe it..."

The Billies are making country in Cambridge a regular thing. For more info., click here.
