One of the hardest working straight-up-rock bands today, Slobberbone includes Best, guitarist Jess Barr, long and tall bassist Brian Lane and drummer Tony Harper. They combine to create driving rock with an occasional alt-country twang that makes you want to drink and howl and smile 'till the roosters crow. Unlike many rock songwriters, Best's in even the most mundane situations. These fellows from Denton, Tex., are generating a big buzz both at home and abroad, so come down to Poe's, Mon., Dec. 9, and have a listen.
