ATX’s Crooks is an indie country band that positively oozes the raucous and rebellious spirit of Texas. The six-piece tribe makes rollicking, whiskey-soaked country music that’s as rowdy as a Saturday night honky tonk and as honest as a man on death row. In the dusty and hallowed halls of Floore’s Country Store, the fast-rising act will channel the ghosts of wild pickers past and stomp out all doubts of its worthiness. With its third recorded release, Wildfire, due out by summer’s end, Crooks is positioned to take the mechanical bull of the old Nashville establishment by storm. With Sam Riggs.
