Alive After Five: Western Centuries 

June 14, Grove Plaza

With only Weight of the World (Free Dirt Records, 2016) to its name, Western Centuries is a relatively new band, but you wouldn't know it from the tight rhythms and rocking country sensibility. The practiced vibe can be credited to the shared experience of Seattle-based Cahalen Morrison, of Cahalen Morrison & Eli West; veteran jam band performer and Donna and the Buffalo co-founder Jim Miller; R&B/bluegrass/punk songwriter Ethan Lawton; pedal steel player Rusty Blake; and bassist Dan Lowinger.

Seamless vocal harmonies are stock-in-trade for Western Centuries, along with whip-smart lyrics and a toe-tapping combination of roots rock, R&B, traditional roadhouse country and a hint of Zydeco shuffle. Catch Western Centuries with local opener Idyltime at Alive After Five, and get a taste for deft "neo-traditional two-stepping tunes" transformed into "rootsy rock 'n' roll doused think-pieces."
