Handsome & The Humbles – Indoor Show
March 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm- FREE
Handsome & The Humbles take on the Smokin’ Monkey Lounge
After testing out a new persona and taking a Southern Gothic detour as the Rev. J. Mikhael Smith with 2020’s Dogwood Winter, Knoxville’s Josh Smith is back with Handsome and the Humbles’ first record in nearly four years. The new EP, 400 Cigarettes, showcases the band’s barroom stomp while tacking on more than a little bit of heartbreak.
Lead track “Wyoming” is a road song crossed with a dancehall weeper about a love that just quite…isn’t – “It was there you said you knew I never loved you/I could not convince myself you were wrong.” The sadness is driven home by a sweet pedal steel line from J. Tom Hnatow. “Good Morning from Nashville” is an appropriately twangy memory of a city where neither music nor love seemed sustainable – “It ain’t easy leaving what you love/Sometimes believing just ain’t enough.”
This is a free show!
