With a convincing Southern drawl for an Idaho native, Micky and the Motorcars frontman Micky Braun sings classic Americana ditties about love, cheating hearts and life on the open road. True to their name, the Motorcars spend 215 days a year motoring across the country and rocking out in dive bars around their home base of Austin, Texas.
Fronted by Braun, the band is also comprised of brother Gary Braun and a handful of other musicians. The Braun lads--who include brothers Willy and Cody Braun of the band Reckless Kelly--grew up in Idaho watching Braun pop Muzzie and his bro Billy perform together as the Braun Brothers.
Micky and the Motorcars will return to Idaho for a special family-filled New Year's Eve performance with Muzzie and Billy Braun and the Jeremiah James Gang.
Thursday, Dec. 31, 7:30 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. show, $25-$100, Knitting Factory, 416 S. Ninth St., 208-367-1212, bo.knittingfactory.com.
