Country Lips

If the Maldives are the Band of Seattle's thriving Americana scene, then Country Lips are its Byrds. True to their forerunners, these scruffy musicians look as though they could consume a fifth of Jack in one sitting, not recommend a juice cleanse instead. If the two bands toured together, they'd need a train (a la Festival Express) to fit their combined 39 members (only a slight exaggeration), and if they decided to team up onstage for an encore, they'd need another stage. Challenging logistics be damned, this colossal local pairing really needs to happen. Meantime, you could do far worse than to catch the Lips alone at a bar the Byrds probably hung out in once or twice. With Contraband Countryband. MIKE SEELY
