The Flatlanders

When: Sat., May 23, 9 p.m. 2009

Best described as a supergroup of cult heroes, the Flatlanders revolve around the West Texas singer-songwriter triumvirate of Butch Hancock, Joe Ely, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. The trio managed to enjoy a second act after the band's obscure 1973 debut Jimmie Dale and the Flatlanders was reissued in 1990 as More a Legend Than a Band. Since the band reconvened a decade later to cut songs for the Horse Whisperer soundtrack, the Flatlanders have enjoyed sporadic studio efforts. The latest is Hills and Valleys, a baker's dozen worth of cuts produced by Lloyd Maines (father of Dixie Chick Natalie). The best conglomeration of twang since the Highwaymen will be getting it done on Saturday, May 23,at Slim's(333 11th St., San Francisco). 9 p.m., $20.
