Buxter Hoot’n: Video, Live Dates


Many are compared to The Band, who have come to be a go-to reference point for describing sound in words, but few actually hold a candle to Levon Helm, Rick Danko and the rest of the supremely gifted group. However, one sometimes stumbles across a young band that’s absorbed the lessons of Big Pink, electric Dylan and the rest. The truth of it hums in the bones of their songs and the artfully relaxed execution of their music. San Francisco’s Buxter Hoot'n is one such happy exception, purveyors of real roots rock, Americana to the core, down to the bullets and outlaw elements that marked the best work Robertson and Zimmerman knocked out back in the day. Buxter Hoot’n’s self-titled album (released May 31) has the feel of the Rolling Thunder Revue updated for today, inviting but full of carnival shadows. There’s much to slap your thighs about and skip to on Buxter Hoot’n but the real rewards come when one lingers within their tales, the unexpected changes in the melodies, cooling harmonies or curious turn-of-phrase raising a smile or an eyebrow with each pass. This band is overflowing with potential, and while mainly a California based affair at present, it’s hoped that smarter festival bookers around the country will tune in and bring these folks out countrywide. For now, Bay Area audiences have a few chances to catch Buxter Hoot’n in the coming month, and y’all can get a taste in the clips below. (Dennis Cook – JamBase Associate Editor)
