Allston has it all when it comes to nightlife — rock shows, dive bars, and college hangouts. Now it’s getting into the country music game.
Brighton Music Hall in Allston is launching Friday Night Country on November 7, a new party that will run weekly until the cows come. It’ll feature live music each week from Boston’s Dalton & the Sheriffs, who will play a mix of originals and covers.
“This should be really fun, and we’re trying to make it the go-to place to hear some great country and dance, something new for Allston,” says Brighton Music Hall talent buyer Lance Tobin.
The night is presented by Country 102.5 WKLB and Bud Light, and there is no cover for the first two weeks (November 7 and 14). After that, there’s a $5 cover and ladies are admitted free of charge. The parties start each week at 10:30 p.m., meaning Brighton Music Hall will likely still have touring bands come through for the “early” portion of the Friday night.
Meanwhile, Dalton & the Sheriffs seem like the right band for this type of residency. They just released their new single “Flying Down A Backroad,” which was produced by Brian Charles at Zippah Recording in Brighton, and packed out the House of Blues in June for the afterparty for Zac Brown Band’s gig across the street at Fenway Park.
