For weeks before we saw them we heard the buzz around Matt Stell & The Crashers, and we finally caught a set at Tommy Leo’s on a wild St. Patrick’s Day night and saw what people were talking about. Now the group is preparing to take the next step up with a CD release party for its newly completed album, The Sound and the Story, at The Outland Ballroom May 9 with opening act The Josh Davis Band. The show forms part of the band’s trek through Missouri, Kansas and Texas, a tour that includes a return trip to the Ballroom May 30 to perform with Brian Lumley & Red Dirt Underground, all in support of the album’s nationwide release. Could a nationwide tour be next?
