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.
