Throwback Thursday: Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound, at Davey’s on Friday
Honky-tonk troubadour Adam Lee only called Kansas City home for a few years before upping stakes to take the role of Johnny Cash in the Chicago production of The Million Dollar Quartet. But in his short time in KC, Lee and his band, the Dead Horse Sound Company, released two albums and played dozens of shows (to say nothing of landing music in director Kevin Smith’s films Red State and Tusk). The group was easily one of the most consistently-entertaining bands in the area, and losing Lee to the Windy City was sad for everyone. Happily, Adam Lee will be back in town tomorrow night, playing Davey’s Uptown tomorrow night with some “friends.”
In the interest of reminding you all what a good time Lee can deliver, here’s some video of Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company performing “Thank the Booze” at the Rev It Up car show in Lawrence back in October of 2011.
