Goodnight, Texas

Wed, Mar 11 2020, 8:00pm - $10 - Tickets

Doors open at 7 pm.

Conventional wisdom says the two frontmen of a band shouldn’t live on opposite sides of the United States, but that's never seemed to deter Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf.

Goodnight, Texas is a band whose strength lies in unexpected sweet spots. Drawing their name from Pat and Avi’s onetime geographic midpoint (the real town of Goodnight in the State of Texas, a tiny hamlet east of Amarillo directly betwixt San Francisco, CA and Chapel Hill, NC), the four-piece (Pat and Avi with Adam Nash and Scott Griffin Padden) also exists at the center of its songwriters’ contrasting styles — via a 1913 Gibson A mandolin and a 2015 Danelectro, at the crossroads of folk and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, in a place where dry wit and dark truths meet hope and utmost sincerity.

The band’s EP “The Senseless Age” features five songs that don’t resemble one another: tastes of every facet of the band’s sound over their seven year career.
