The Best Roots-Rock Band You Never Heard Of Is In Town... Again

Cleveland roots-rockers The Magpies pull into Cactus Music today for an instore performance. They were unable to book a Houston gig during the current swing though Texas and Oklahoma, but arranged an instore anyway because "we need to keep working Houston," according to keyboardist Justin Gorski.

The Ohio foursome stole the show two years ago at Hayes Carll's Stingaree Festival at Bolivar and have been working Houston steadily since. They killed at the Continental in January. If you like your roots music rocking, these guys will be right up your alley.
