Lubbock might seem an unlikely place for fresh and original music - that is, if you didn’t already know about Buddy Holly, the Flatlanders, Terry Allen, Jay Boy Adams, and so on. Now Thrift Store Cowboys are adding their own modern sound to the South Plains musical landscape.

Constant touring throughout the South and West Coast has helped Thrift Store Cowboys build their fan base. Over the last five years, they have been invited to some of the country’s top indie venues: the Granada Theater in Dallas, the Bluebird Theater in Denver, Threadgill’s World Headquarters in Austin, and the Launchpad in Albuquerque. They have shared the stage with national acts like the Old 97’s, Ian Moore, the Flatlanders, Billy Joe Shaver, and DeVotchKa.

Rather than depend on one or two leaders to shape its sound, Thrift Store Cowboys draws on the talents of all five members. What results is an intoxicatingly eclectic mix that on any given night can include rock, country, mariachi, and even waltzes. In February the band completed work on a new album, recorded at Wavelab Studios in Tucson, Arizona and produced by Craig Schumacher (Calexico, Neko Case, Iron & Wine). Look for the new album in early 2006.
