Thursday To-Do: Cody Belew & The Locals

Posted By on Mon, May 17, 2010 at 7:49 AM

9 p.m., Bill St. $5.

Cody Belew is one busy, multi-talented cat. He jumps from blue-eyed soul gigs at Afterthought, spreading it on Frankie and Ella, to neo-country sets around town that call to mind Gillian Welch or Justin Townes Earle. Regardless of what genre he's working in, he takes to the stage naturally, with a signature, animated self-confidence that brands him a showman. This time around, Belew has constructed a formidable backup band in The Locals, featuring members of Hanky Pank, Father Maple, half of Damn Bullets and a splash of feminine touch in local denim chanteuse Bonnie Montgomery; according to Belew, they work in a soundscape of “White County country with a twist” that sounds like Roy Orbison one minute and Old Crow Medicine Show the next.
