Join us for a wild night of drinkin', dancin', and dirty hillbilly music featuring Big Jugs and Three Times Bad.
HiLLBiLLY ROBOT: an Urban Americana Music Event returns for round three. The festival, we mean event, runs every weekend in February and features a variety of urban-flavored Americana; including classic country, outlaw country, vintage bluegrass, 50s rockabilly, western-swing, New Orleans jazz, and wild Americana. This year's event welcomes bands as far away as Brooklyn, New York and Portland, Oregon, with lots of local favorites in the mix, including Belle Monroe & her Brewglass Boys 20 year anniversary show and JonEmery & The Dry County Drinkers CD release party. No matter what your listening pallet may be (city or country) we've got a little something for everyone. So break out your bestest overalls, spit-shine your boots, and head on down to Hillbilly Robot for some good old-fashioned downhome music.

BIG JUGS (Santa Barbara/Ventura)
BigJugs is your Grandpa's favorite country band, but don't expect to find the album anywhere around his house. He won't bring it out at Thanksgiving while the family sits down at the bird. And no, you won't find the record in the front room between his Merle and Willie vinyl. Grandma may not even know the album exists. You see, Grandpa hides it out in the barn next to his old ass kickin' boots. It's from a time when he used to spit tobacco in the face of danger, drink whiskey till sun was rising and knock the dickens out of any man who wore a sour grin. He even had his own robe down at the local bordello, where he seldom had to pay. And his favorite band was BIG JUGS.
