Maybe you know him for his best single "The Ride"—a dusty ode to country heritage in which our lyrical protagonist bros down with the ghost of Hank Williams. Or maybe your introduction was when you picked up a copy of Rebel Meets Rebel—because you're that much of a Dimebag Darrell (RIP!) completionist. Odds are though, you probably know David Allan Coe for the infamous pearls of Outlaw Country wisdom found on his self-released, self-distributed X-rated albums, Nothing Sacred and Underground Album. Whatever your history with or personal stance on Coe, I think we can all agree on one thing: the people-watching at Dante's tonight is sure to be perverse, scary fun. Enjoy one of the classier hits below, and look for me around Old Town tonight—I'll be the one playing "Spot The Dixie Flag", trying to avoid getting bashed.
David Allan Coe performs tonight at Dantes, 1 SW 3rd Ave, with Michael Dean Dameron at 8 PM.
