Excerpt from The Austin Chronicle Article: Don't Look Back, The Lonesome Heroes Rewrite the Rules of Alt Country.

Since taking up residency at the Hole in the Wall last September, the Lonesome Heroes' nights have become one of the most popular weekly events in Austin. As a genre, hardly begins to characterize the eclectic lineups that Russell and McMeans put together. The Wednesday bills draw crowds mixing Mohawk punks and country kickers, as well as some of the town's top musicians and producers. Behind Russell and McMeans' infectious energy and their intent on building a collaborative environment, it's a scene that recalls the days of Doug Sahm holding court at the Soap Creek Saloon.
