Smart Bets: Whiskey Shivers

Austin, Texas-based Whiskey Shivers plays the kind of Americana/bluegrass that shreds fiddle bows and wears holes in guitars. They also have a sense of humor (check out the video for "Gimme All Your Lovin," from upcoming album Batholith, on YouTube). "Whiskey Shivers is a rip roarin' string band cyclone, guaranteeing a high energy, down-home time," the band says on its bio. They'll prove those words during a Friday, Sept. 2 show at the Emerald Lounge with Blind Boy Chocolate and John Wilkes Boothe and the Black Toothe. 10 p.m., $5.
