The Black Lillies are a rowdy band of rolling stones from Knoxville, Tennessee. Crooning honky tonk tunes for the thinking man, the band is known for lighting up dusty southwestern bars and major music festivals alike. While the Black Lillies’ exuberant stage presence appeals to younger audiences, the easygoing fans of Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons will likewise appreciate the group’s effortless integration of Appalachian twang and rollicking folk rock. Well-versed in the grit and grind of pioneers like Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds, the group remixes the hackneyed themes of stadium country into upbeat songs like the infectious "Two Hearts Down" and “Hard to Please,” the titular track of the band’s latest studio album. Hit the rewind button on simpler times and cut a rug with the Black Lillies at 502 Bar. 8pm, $8-12, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks
