Butch Hancock, Joe Ely and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, better known as Lubbock, Texas' hard luck country legends the Flatlanders play Smith's Olde Bar tonight (Tues., Nov. 10) in support of their latest record, Hills and Valleys.
The first time around, Jimmie Dale and the Flatlanders' self-titled 1972 debut, which only appeared as an 8-Track, was the big bang of the alt. country universe.
Since it's 1990 CD reissue, dubbed More A Legend Than A Band, the Flatlanders have basked in their mystique, and since '02 have been continually churning-out solid, Lone Star State tales that swell with personal and political turmoil and a songwriter flare that recalls a more elegant time for country music.
The Flatlanders play Smith's Olde Bar tonight. $30. 7 p.m. (early door). 1578 Piedmont Ave. 404-875-1522.
