Badlands bring country and more to the Owl Acoustic lounge

E-mail Print PDF

New local  alternative country band Badlands returned to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Nov. 24 for a good sized crowd.


The band, including lead singer, rhythm guitarist Ali Cat, bassist Devin Gergel, drummer Avery Friesen and lead guitarist Brett Skauge.

Their second set was country, with plenty of songs about heartbreak and whiskey and regrets and often all three.


 One of their songs was a pretty solid ’50s doo wop style  number.


Brett Skauge sang lead on a song I think was called “ Times like These.”


 Skauge and Ali sang a duet about being wrong for each other that was a highlight.


They ranged between traditional country, honky tonk, a touch of outlaw, some 50s pop and ’90s country.
