Local Country crew holds down Thursdays weekly at The Avenue in Covington
New local Country band Jeremy Pinnell and The 55s — featuring Pinnell, the former frontman for The Light Wires, The Brothers and The Sisters and other local favorites, back on the mic — has started a new weekly gig at The Avenue in Covington, one of the rising venues on the local scene for area original bands. The 55s hold down the fort every week for Honky Tonk Thursdays at the bar. The shows are free and kick off at around 9 p.m.Here's a clip The 55s did for The Emery Sessions, a fantastic live performance video series shot at the historic Emery Theatre in OTR, with visuals handled by renowned local photographer Michael Wilson (he also took the photo above) and audio manned by Pop Empire's Cameron Cochran (who also plays lap steel with the 55s and co-helms the Sessions). Here they are performing the song "Back Home."
