Classic Country Night

When he’s not fronting the excellent, under-appreciated Widower, guitarist and songwriter Kevin Large can often be found at the Hazlewood in Ballard. Every Monday, while his stylish gal Sarah Fisher mixes up fresh ginger bourbons and other artisan cocktails downstairs, he holds down the DJ decks upstairs, playing an oddly successful mix of primarily classic country staples like Merle Haggard and Hank Williams, but occasionally tossing in the dreaded “New Country” single. Believe it or not, it works somehow, if only because placing Garth Brooks next to Waylon Jennings is bound to make the latter look even more luminous. HANNAH LEVIN
