The Flatlanders in Sellersville

Lubbock, Texas legends The Flatlanders - country-plus song-poet troubadours Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock - don't make it up to the northeastern U.S. as a trio all that often. But all three will be at the Sellersville Theater in Bucks County tonight. 

The Flatlanders recorded there debut abum - complete with a musical saw - in 1972, but it went unissued until 1990, when it came out under the appropriate title More A Legend Than A Band. This August, the trio will release The Odessa Tapes, consisting of demoes that were recorded before their that 1972 demos was recorded.

Below, check out the band doing "My Wildest Dreams Go Wilder Every Day" from Austin City Limits in 2006. Show info here.
