Photo review: Cory Branan, Joey Cape & Jon Snodgrass at New World Brewery

A delightful and talented band of troubadours, Cory Branan, Jon Snodgrass (of Drag the River/Armchair Martian) and Joey Cape (of Lagwagon), stopped in at New World Brewery on a balmy Thursday evening, June 25, 2009. The concept behind this tour was to get these three alt-country musicians together on a stage and see what happens in a casual format, kinda like the Revival Tour.

Jon Snodgrass and Cory Branan kicked off the festivities by alternating songs and occassionally perfoming in duet - check out "Born Apart." The audience enthusiastically joined in on their performance singing along to their favorite tunes including Sondgrass' "Song for Gibson" and Branan's "Prettiest Waitress In Memphis."

After a rash of string breaking, which allowed time for some Branan jovial banter, the show sailed smoothly on alternating old favorites (though sadly missing Branan's "Tall Green Grass") with new offerings. The audience surely felt, "We'll be off the radar, off the map."

After starting off the evening with some beard trimming advice, Joey Cape capped the evening off singing his heart out to a dedicated group of fans.
