New Years Eve with the New Mexican Revolution!

Friday, December 31st
8pm No Cover
Fort George Brewery

The music of the New Mexican Revolution has its roots in the gothic Americana of performers like Willie Nelson, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Wilco and Los Lobos. Their songs are stories of drifters, wanderers and lost souls set against a kaleidoscope of American music, with an array of instrumentation and textures.

Songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Wesley Shirley grew up in the high desert of New Mexico, listening to the country music of the 70’s and 80’s in his parents record collection. The joy and desolation of this environment informs much of the music of tNMR. Having its start in Ft. Collins, Colorado and after playing around northern Colorado for two years, the band took a hiatus as Wes dedicated his time to other musical projects. In 2004, the Revolution reformed with a new lineup, playing the old songs, along with a handful of new ones, and began to gig around their new home town of Portland, Oregon. The first album, The Promise of Mutiny, was released in September of 2004, and they successfully toured the west coast and mountain states twice in the summer of 2005 in support. Their second album, Theories of Sun and Rain, was released in May of 2006, and has received positive reviews both at home and abroad. The Revolution has benefited from a long list of collaborators and conspirators over the years, and continues to value the collaborative effort of music making as they record and perform new music and continue to tour.
