Doug Armento and the Iron Mules

Pengilly's, Saturday, Jan. 5


The members of Middleton-based band Doug Armento and the Iron Mules are country down to the steel shanks in their boots. Centered on frontman Doug Armento's deep, rasp-edged holler and a heavy dose of guitar, the four-piece is deep in outlaw country: It takes photoshoots with a shiny red pickup as a point of pride and encourages its fans to "slip on your dancin' boots [and] get your rowdy on" for regular shows at spots like The Ranch Club, Indian Creek Steakhouse and Double Diamond Saloon. This time, the band will spin through Pengilly's in downtown Boise for a foot-stomping performance Saturday, Jan. 5. And if the rest of its repertoire is as strong as "Montello Rose," a fresh track debuted in April, drinkers at the bar had better get ready to hit the dance floor.
