Totally by accident, I came across this report of a recent show by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, one of my favorite bands in the world. I’ve seen this band several times and they’re basically the ultimate bar band. Roger Clyne is a great troubadour songwriter in the tradition of Warren Zevon or Robert Earl Keen, spinning tales of tequila, senoritas and sunsets. Their shows are a celebration of the finest in unpretentious rock and roll and they’ve often been called the best live band in America. If you ever get a chance to see them live, I suggest you run, don’t walk, to wherever they’re playing.
