Alive After Five: Greyhounds 

Grove Plaza, June 27

The first bricks of what would become Greyhounds were laid in Los Angeles in 1999, but the band has Texas written all over it, and in the daylight between the City of Angels and east Texas (where keyboardist Anthony Farrell and Andrew Trube eventually settled) they wrote songs for the likes of Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. Their sound—a smooth blend of country, rock and blues—is that of a bar band cutting better tracks than its influences, and on Greyhounds' latest album, Cheyenne Valley Drive (Dine Alone Records, 2018), there are plenty of great, original songs, like "WMD" and "12th Street," tunes that are fun to dance to with lyrics that sway between doleful and witty.
