Alive After Five: The Far West 

July 15, Grove Plaza


Posting or answering Craigslist ads can have negative consequences but for The Far West vocalist/guitarist Lee Briante, it paid off big time. He posted a video of Waylon Jennings with a note: "Looking to do something like this." Before long, he was joined by like-minded musicians Brian Bachman, Aaron Bakker, Robert Black and Michael Whiteside and The Far West was born.

With a handful of albums under its collective belt, The Far West has set a strong foundation to build on, gaining fans and garnering some sweet words. The LA Weekly wrote, "When they rev up, The Far West recall any number of the '70s cosmic cowboy rockers, but when they break down, well that's the real good stuff,"and Given and Taken in Ink claimed "The Far West do gut-wrenching country better than just about anybody."
