Willie Nelson Tribute Night

Hey, did you hear? Willie's playing the Puyallup Fair on September 7. I know, I know, the man fits between prize pies and blue-ribbon steers as tastefully as Jiff goes down between pancakes and syrup. Before the Countryman comes to P-town to provide the soundtrack to your end-of-summer gluttony, his local disciples are paying tribute tonight at Conor Byrne. Country Dave and The Pickin' Crew, the Crying Shame, Risky Liver, and Fascination Nation will be on hand to try out-Willie each other. Speaking of tributes … Willie himself just released a spot-on cover of Pearl Jam's "Just Breathe." A non-ironic blue ribbon tonight goes to the band that can "Just Breathe" better than the rest.
