Something Olde, Something New

neil and nick at the 'moThere are plenty of good reasons for you to be at Smith’s Olde Bar this Thursday, July 1 around 9 p.m. Sweetwater 420 on draught, Fox Bros. barbecue, great service from friendly bartenders and great company from the saucy regulars of the bar. However, the most important reason for you to swing on by Smith’s on Thursday will be to hear some great live tunes from local artist Neil Cribbs.

Neil Cribbs, a transplant from Boone, N.C., has been delighting audiences around Atlanta with his dusky vocals and reflective lyrics for over two years. His songs are stories of the greatest American past times: love, loss, memory and hope, crafted together with solid, rhythmic guitar and bright bursts of harmonica.

Cribbs will be playing a mix of fervid originals from his new album “Marionette,” along with some familiar tunes he has restyled to fit perfectly in his portfolio. Ever heard Michael Jackson in the style of Americana? Well be prepared to do a sparkly-gloved crotch grab of enthusiasm because you will this Thursday.

Cribbs will also be playing the Strange Daze music festival this August.

Visit www.neilcribbs.com for more show dates, to purchase “Marionette,” or just to see photos of a great beard in action.
