In a haze of smoke Brent Amaker and the Rodeo performed an afternoon set at Saturday’s Capitol Hill Block Party. Neumos was hot and packed with people to watch six cowboys in white play some excellent country music. And what’s sexier than six cowboys dressed in black, the Rodeo’s usual color of choice? Six cowboys dressed in full white outfits. Frontman Brent Amaker brought a whip. The entire band and dancer Bunny Monroe brought the dark, good times. Brent Amaker and the Rodeo’s new album, Year of the Dragon, hits stores this fall – New material was awesome, and if you missed this show you can catch them in August at the Gorge’s Watershed Festival.
