Since Douglas McCombs started the project in 1996, Brokeback has been absolutely awesome. Illinois River Valley Blues, which came out in February of this year, is easily the band’s best release yet. The album looks back on McComb’s childhood in the Chicagoland area, and serves as a personal, introspective look at who he is. The album is dark and rich, and everything a Brokeback album should be. The show is going to be pretty fantastic, and Brokeback will be joined by Javelins and Minihorse, which are both awesome in their own rights.
