All Ages, Blues, Folk, & Country

Jon Langford and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts

When: Fri., Oct. 2, 7:30 p.m. 2009

Somewhat of an ADD-riddled musical genius, Jon Langford possesses a restless creativity that's taken him from continued longtime membership in punk outfit the Mekons and y'alternative outfit the Waco Brothers to becoming an insurgent country godfather operating out of his adopted Chicago hometown. The Pine Valley Cosmonauts are a conglomeration of like-minded musical souls recruited by Langford and whose members have ties to Chi-Town indie imprint Bloodshot Records. Langford and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts have cut albums that have paid tribute to Bob Wills and storied radio show the WLS National Barn Dance as well as anti capitol punishment projects, so expect the mood to be cheekily rambunctious. Joining in on the fun will be current and ex-labelmatesRosie Flores, the Sadies, Sally Timms and Rico Bell on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Swedish American Hall (2714 Market St., San Francisco). 7:30 p.m., $20.
