The list of accolades earned by Too Slim & The Taildraggers is too long to recount. Suffice to say, the power trio fronted by six-string master Tim "Too Slim" Langford—who left Seattle for Nashville in 2012—has drawn high-profile praise from the likes of Billboard, the Blues Foundation and the Blues Music Awards and, in the Northwest, the Washington, Cascade and Inland Empire blues societies. Blues Review Magazine called them "one of the finest original blues rock trios performing today."
Langford, bassist Eric Hanson and drummer/vocalist Jeff "Shakey" Fowlkes, have made their mark with a searing, electric blues sound that slithers and strikes as it rocks and rolls. Don't miss Too Slim & The Taildraggers when they rock old NW stomping grounds at Alive After Five. Local act the Zack Quintana Band opens, and you won't want this show to close.
With Zack Quintana Band, 5 p.m., FREE. Grove Plaza, downtownboise.org.
