Alive After Five: Wayne 'The Train' Hancock, June 8 

When he was 18 years old, Wayne Hancock won a talent contest for his songwriting and musicianship. Shortly thereafter, he joined the Marines. Four years in the Corps couldn't knock the rock out of him and in 1995, the twangy, cowboy hat-wearing Hancock—now nicknamed "The Train"—cut his first album: Thunderstorms and Neon Signs (Dejadisc). He has been cutting deep, old-timey country/western tracks ever since, and his songs have been covered by Hank Williams III. Hancock's music is like something from the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack crossed with boogie bop and rockabilly. It's perfect for dancing to, which is the thing to do at Alive After Five, where Hancock will headline, with Boise's own western band Poke opening. Don't miss them at The Basque Block Wednesday, June 8.
