Austin's The Lonesome Heroes stop at Front Range Barbeque in the Springs

"It's tough to pin The Lonesome Heroes to any one music genre. The Austin, Texas-based band calls its brand of music Cosmic Americana, which takes it beyond a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll into the territory of indie music.

"The term comes from Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers - hippies starting to play more country," said Rich Russell, the band's vocalist and guitarist. "Cosmic Americana music is not hugely different from notion of Americana in general: Country, blues and rock 'n' roll all came from the same place. So it's cosmic and slightly psychedelic."
