Guns of Nevada, Sweet Rebel D

When: Sat., Oct. 18, 8 p.m. 2014

With some bands, you can take a scan through their song or album titles and immediately get where they’re coming from, musically speaking. And that’s not a bad thing when you’re talking about a straightforward rock crew like Seattle’s Guns of Nevada, whose most recent release is the anthem-filled Songs in the Key of Whiskey. Older songs “Outlaws” and “Hard to Wave Goodbye in Handcuffs” got the band some attention via CMT’s reality show Chopper Challenge, but they’ve spent the majority of their career burning up the highways of the Northwest. Their gigs are full of boisterous beer-raising and sing-along choruses that immediately embed themselves in the listener’s noggin, even through a haze of booze.
