Whitey Morgan & the 78s

MATTHEW SINGER
9 pm, Friday January 10 | $10.
Dante's
350 W Burnside St.
 

[PURE COUNTRY GOLD] Like the best revivalists in any genre, Michigan native and country purist Whitey Morgan really doesn’t seem to know what decade it is. The two albums released along with his backing band, the 78\'s—2008\'s Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels and 2010\'s self-titled sophomore effort—are full of twangy guitars, twinkling pedal steel and vocals drawling tales of booze, jukeboxes and Buicks. There ain’t nothing “alternative” about this dude: It’s pure outlaw country so authentic you’d think he’d been trapped in the storage room of an abandoned Midwest honky-tonk since the 1970s. Come to think of it, who’s to say that isn’t the case?
