Dust City Trio
Indie Folk Rock in the Cellar Bar!
“We’re back again! The Dust City Opera is putting together another special trio for this raw and intimate set of DCO favorites. Come hear Paul Hunton with support from Jared Putnam and Greg Williams.
The Dust City Opera is New Mexico’s freshest indie folk-rock band led by singer/songwriter Paul Hunton. They’re known for their unique instrumentation, vibrant covers, and crafty songwriting, often juxtaposing dark, bold subject matter over whimsical, light-hearted melodies. Hunton’s songwriting is strikingly visual and spans the spectrum from playful to apocalyptic, balancing his powerful voice over exceptional arrangements of dreamy guitar licks and intensely rich horns.
They are an unusual combination of sounds, including the expected rock band instruments, as well as trombone, accordion, clarinet and more. Their genre is best described as folk-rock with influences from rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, classical, and alt-country. Artists they like and are inspired by include: Cake, Tom Waits, Chris Cornell, the Handsome Family, and the Felice Brothers.”
