Be Good TanyasAmericana heroines The Be Good Tanyas will play the Bootleg Bar in Los Angeles August 17, following their gig at Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival on Saturday Aug. 11 with the likes of Metallica, Sigur Ros, The Kills and more.

Amoeba Music
is proud to present the show, which also features Leftover Cuties and Willie Watson of Americana string band Old Crow Medicine Show. This is a 21+ event. Tickets are available at Amoeba Hollywood! As is their latest album, A Collection (2000-2012), which gives an overview of the 21st century roots band’s existence. Their three studio albums, Blue Horse, Chinatown and Hello Love, are available as well.

The Be Good Tanyas CollectionThe Be Good Tanyas, consisting of Frazey Ford (guitar, vocals), Samantha Parton (guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals) and Trish Klein (guitar, banjo, vocals), formed in the late 1990s after meeting at tree-planting camps in British Columbia — yes, apparently these exist in Canada, which is clearly a more thoughtful place. The band also once included the Tom Waits-feted folk singer Jolie Holland. The band is known for its exquisite harmonies, renditions of traditional songs such as “Oh! Susannah” and particularly a rousing take on “The Lakes of Pontchartrain,” as well as original songs faithful to traditional roots music. Ford’s sweetly warbling voice also has been featured on her solo ablum Obadiah, released in 2010. You may have heard her haunting “Firecracker” now and then on KCRW, where she also recently performed.
