The Black Lillies

The Black Lillies are a rowdy band of rolling stones from Knoxville, Tennessee. Crooning honky-tonk tunes for the thinking man, the band is known for lighting up dusty Southwestern bars and major music festivals alike. While The Black Lillies’ exuberant stage presence appeals to younger audiences, the easygoing fans of Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons also appreciate the group’s effortless integration of Appalachian twang and rollicking folk rock. Well-versed in the grit and grind of pioneers like Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds, the group remixes the hackneyed themes of stadium country into upbeat songs like “Hard to Please,” the titular track of the band’s latest studio album. $8-$12, 8pm Thu, Oct. 27, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks,
