Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours Still Trekking 

June 24, Egyptian Theatre

Antsy is an odd moniker. You might as well go with Can't-Sit-Still Jones. But for the musician Ron "Antsy" McClain, antsy is as much a description as it is a name.

For the high-energy Antsy McClain and Trailer Park Troubadours, it's all flamingoes, pompadours, a little swagger and a lot of Americana music when they pull into a town. They regale faithful followers--called "flamingoheads"--with songs that are an homage to the archetypal residents of small-town America like "I Was Just Flipped Off By A Silver Haired Old Lady With A 'Honk If You Love Jesus' Sticker On The Bumper Of Her Car" and "Living in Aluminum." A la Garrison Keillor, McClain tells stories from the make-believe Pine View Heights Trailer Park as if he and the Troubs are lounging on the front lawn of their trailer house with 600-700 of their closest friends.

Let your hair down--or pomade it up--and as McClain would say, "enjoy the ride."

This show is a benefit for NAMI.
