[COUNTRY] Alt-country troubadour Boo Ray is old school. For his new Tennessee Alabama Fireworks, he hones in on the hollow ‘selfie age’ culture that’s plaguing us and stilting our means of communicating with one another. Tracked live-to-tape over five days at Nashville’s Welcome to 1979 Studio, (Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Jason Isbell are all recent visitors), Tennessee Alabama Fireworks is both grim and hopeful, as the best country records often are. In his spare time, the artist does custom leather work, making hand tooled guitar straps and belts for customers like Johnny Knoxville, Juliette Lewis and Billy Gibbons. Catch his earthy tone at Buffalo Iron Works on Thursday, April 18 with special guests. Doors are at 7:00 p.m., $7/$10.
