We don't get a lot of Texans around here... But when we do, we put Palomas on Special. In honor of Texan space cowboy Garrett T. Capps coming to space grace our stage this Thursday, It's Paloma day bay bay. Regional country superstar Skinny Dyckis on the bill too. Hot. Dang. Unfortunately, Bobby Tenderloin Universe will no longer be able to join us, but it'll be alright, I swear.

 

 GTC is a Bad mofo. He makes cowboy kraut with his band NASA Country & also lots of Tex-Mex rock n' roll. He is San Antonio’s resident cosmic country gonzo honky tonk weirdo freak. He is a national treasure in Holland. He can usually be found at The Lonesome Rose, the bar he owns in the city he was born in. foo.

Garrett T. Capps is the city of San Antonio’s resident cosmic country gonzo honky tonk weirdo freak, and if you’re looking to unwind from all the bullshit of, well, pretty much everything these days, cue this thing up and you’ll immediately be letting loose and losing your long face. Take a vintage 70’s Austin attitude, and add a healthy dash of authentic Texican culture, and I Love San Antone is like the perfect plate of enchiladas. 

Garrett T. Capps has been a big booster for independent country music in San Antonio for years now, booking and promoting shows, bringing artists down from Austin, opening for national names as they roll through town, and cheerfully meeting the challenge of making the Alamo City into a musical destination as opposed to just ceding everything to Austin like so many in the region do. 

But the man in the glasses has never really put his adulation for San Antone in song quite like this. This album is like a love letter to country music in the city. It’s okay if you really have no thoughts or opinions on San Antonio or its music, Garrett T. Capps is here to sell you on the virtues of both, not just by proudly representing it with his own efforts, but in multiple instances on this record he gives you a downright history lesson. 

Oh but don’t worry, don’t expect some dry recitation of San Antonio’s resume points. From the starting gun, Garrett comes out swinging with the rambunctious and spirited “I Like Austin, But I love San Antone,” spelling it all out for you, boldly professing San Antonio isn’t just equipped to compete with Austin and that city’s rapid-declining music culture, it’s a measure better. 

Okay, maybe that’s still a bit of wishful thinking at this point, but Garrett sure makes a strong case. You may look at the track list and say, “A cover of Jethro Tull’s ‘Locomotive Breath’ on a country record? What the hell?” But wait until you hear the guitar and drums kick in on this version. You’ll be swinging your hat over your head like a sauced up cowboy on Saturday night, and saying, “Why the hell has nobody ever done this before?”
