The Von Ehrics may look like your typical cowboys but that is very far from the truth. Living in Texas, this trio was raised solely on country and gospel music. And of course, like all teenagers, they found punk and rock in the rebellious years. Now they take the best of both worlds and blend them together to create an aggressive cowpunk sound. The Von Ehrics will be playing at NYC’s Arlene’s Grocery on Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. and Brooklyn’s Hank’s Saloon on Dec. 5 at 11 p.m. vonehrics.com.
