Event Details

Play  just  the  first  10  seconds  of  “The  Mountain,”  which  opens  Geronimo,  the  latest  and  most  ambitious  release  from  Shane  Smith  &  The  Saints.  Robust  a  cappella,  four-part  harmonies  set  the  stage  for  a  saga  of  family  tragedy,  a  young  son’s  revenge  and  a  blaze  burning  eternally  in  a  Pennsylvania  mine.  The  vivid  lyrics,  powerful  vocals  and  thumping  four-beat  drums  throughout  this  song  are  reason  enough  for  lovers  of  creative  roots  music  to  celebrate. From  their  home  base  in  Austin  through  performances  across  the  country and abroad,  these  five  gentlemen  have  not  just  stuck  stubbornly  to  their  musical  and  lyrical  convictions.  They’ve  defied  audience  expectations  by  delivering  incendiary  shows,  each  one  ignited  by  the  band’s  ability  to  unleash,  feed  from  and  feed  back  the  energy  of  the  crowd  —  in  spite  of  the  fact  that  they  don’t  fit  easily  into  any  musical  category. With  Geronimo,  they’ve  dared  themselves  to  exceed  their  own  expectations. Each  song  begins  with  Smith  creating  its  “bones,”  in  the  form  of  chords  and  lyrics.  He  then  joins  fiddler  Bennett  Brown,  lead  guitarist  Tim  Allen,  bassist  Chase  Satterwhite  and  drummer  Zack  Stover  to  bring  those  bones  to  life.
