The Basinbillies

 Posted: 2:00 AM September 20, 2012

Longtime friends Corey Christensen (guitar, mandolin and harmonica), Harris McClellan (washtub bass), Andrew Morton (guitar) and Steve Hathaway (banjo), who hail from Klamath Falls, relocated to Portland but brought a little bit of redneck with them.

The Basinbillies combine old-timey bluegrass and modern punk to form a style it describes as "thrashgrass," "folk-and-roll" and "hillstomp rock." (Think Flogging Molly meets The Soggy Bottom Boys meets The Descendents.)

The Basinbillies' freshman album, "Whisky on a Work Night," features four-part harmonies and the band's signature, raucous soundscape.

The band will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, at The Wild Goose Cafe & Bar, 2365 Highway 66, Ashland.
