GOOD TIME RAMBLERS9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $6.
During the Times Showcase, judge 607 described the Good Time Ramblers'
sound as “highway music.” That sounds about right. The four-piece specializes in an elastic style of country rock. Shuffling and twang-y here. Foot-stomping-ly raucous there. It doesn't hurt matters that front man John Lefler has a natural charisma and favors lyrics about drinkin', wild women and cross-country misadventures. The band, which also features Rich Dwiggins (vocals, bass), Alex Piazza (lead guitar, pedal steel, etc.) and Brooks Browning (drums) of the Munks, comes to Sticky Fingerz on Thursday to celebrate the release of its latest album, “Nashville Cowboy.” (They'll also play after the Travs' game on Saturday at Dickey-Stephens, 'round 10 p.m. or so.) Austin's Band of Heathens
works a hearty dose of blue-eyed soul into its country rock in the opening slot.
