Dang, but it seems like Bonnie Montgomery has been gone forever!

She went to New York City so they could stage a reading of "Billy Blythe," her opera about a day in the life of an adolescent Bill Clinton, and stayed for a while and played a bunch of shows at all kinds of hip nightclubs and speakeasies, and recorded a radio concert, and went on MSNBC and appeared in the pages of The New York Observer and Huffington Post and TIME and The New Yorker and whatnot.

Meanwhile, all her friends and family and everybody back home in Central Arkansas were all missing her. Well, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Bonnie is back and she's playing a bunch of shows, both solo and with her Montgomery Trucking outfit (see calendar). If you haven't had occasion to check out her country-rock 'n' roll-hillbilly hybrid tunes, what are you waiting for?

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
