Steve Earle in Austin in July (more by Tim Griffin)
Steve Earle

In the NY Post:

You might recognize roots singer Steve Earle from his turn on the Big Easy HBO series "Treme." Or you might have seen him around town, walking or on the F train.

Born in Virginia, raised in Texas and settled in Nashville, Earle made New York City home a few years back. Reflecting on a pair of hometown shows -- Town Hall on Tuesday and the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday -- Earle says, "Your guest list ends up looking like the extras from 'The Ten Commandments,' there's the usual stress of a hometown gig. But I love to play New York City, it's home." He adds, "You have to work a little bit harder. It's like playing baseball in New York."

Earle would like to take the subway to his gigs, but was still discussing it with his wife, singer Allison Moorer, who shares the bill with him and his band the Dukes (and Duchesses).

Don't forget about The Wire!

Tickets are still on sale for both Town Hall and Music Hall of Williamsburg. All dates are listed HERE. Welcome home Steve & Allison (for a few days anyway).

That's right. He was that redneck. I'm sure his band is as country as apple-pie.

Allison Moorer's songs just popped up on my Pinzee playlist as I was in downtown Brooklyn of all places. Must be her vibe in town.

the only thing he has ever done that I like at all was when he took one in the coconut in Treme...
