For Austin, Texas, band Micky and the Motorcars, traveling to Idaho is coming home. Brothers Micky and Gary Braun were raised in Challis and formed their alt-country outfit in Stanley before moving to Austin to record the band's inaugural release, Which Way From Here.
Since then, the band has made four more albums, including 2011's Raise My Glass.
The brothers Braun join their father, Muzzie, for an annual New Year's performance at Knitting Factory, Monday, Dec. 31, to toast the end of 2012.
Sure, you could spend New Year's Eve sipping Andre from a plastic cup, straining to hear songs through an iPod dock. But to ring in 2013 Texas-style, the Braun family will be stomping its boots at the Knitting Factory.[ Video is no longer available. ]
