Drugstore Gypsies Bring Boozy, Texas-Style Rock to Proud Larry's Tonight

Drugstore Gypsies

Boozy, foot-stomping, guitar-fueled southern rock is on the menu at Proud Larry’s tonight as Drugstore Gypsies roll in from the Lone Star State at 9 p.m.
Admission to the show is free.
Listed by Rolling Stone as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know About,” Drugstore Gypsies work in a style some call “Texas country,” but it’s still rock-and-roll to most of us.
“We’ve played shows with guys like Stoney LaRue, and that’s great, but we’re pulling from the Eagles, the Rolling Stones, Van Halen [and] Aerosmith,” lead singer Duke Ryan told Rolling Stone last summer. “To us, that falls into the vein of rock and roll.”

Ryan co-founded the band with guitarist Dillan Dostal in 2014. They soon added drummer Rey Chapa and bassist Korey Davis, with John Wilson later joining on Hammond organ and rhythm guitar. They released their self-titled debut album in 2016.
Described as “a dynamic body of rip-roaring rock-and-roll from start to finish,” the album featured songs like the riff-laden “Breakin’ the Law”—which evokes memories of classic Lynyrd Skynrd—as well as “Black Label Boogie” and “Show Up Show Down” and the Americana-tinged “Indian Summer” and “Running To.”
According to the band’s press materials, the album “explores what it means to be an impetuous young American male living life to the fullest in the heart of the South. Tales of humorous conquest blend into battles with burgeoning demons. Stories of love and betrayal lay bare the band’s undeniable maturity as writers hidden just beneath a convincing veneer of youth and bravado.”
