ere, when Devon Coyote and the Midnight Howl along with Plastic Acid both perform at Bud’s Bar & Lounge on Thursday, August 8th.

“Bud’s is gonna be awesome — I really enjoy playing that room,” Devon Coyote told The Echo. “It won’t be as heavy as we’ve had it in the past, but bluesy, with lots of feel and deep grooves.”

Coyote, from Kelowna, says the group focuses more on touring than the studio. When they do record, the band doesn’t use music technology in the typical fashion.

“Our albums are a lot more performance-driven,” he said. His pack is nearly finished recording a six-track EP.

“We used a way different recording process,” he said. “No edits really.”

During recording, if one of the musicians performed a misstep, the band would choose to record the track over again, or live with the error.

“Even if there’s little flubs, you just embrace that and live with ‘em,” Coyote explained. “More like real music than the cookie-cutter stuff you can get into in the studio.”

The band has played over 110 shows already this year, he said, which keeps their performance sharp.

“We spend a lot of time on the road, from acoustic sets to big heavy rock shows.”

To go along with his rock ‘n’ roll voice, Coyote will be seen using a handful of different instruments to give his Western rockabilly an authentic sound. He’s been performing for more than two years as Devon Coyote.

“I started just as a weekend warrior in an acoustic duo that played mostly in the Okanagan and Revelstoke area, but we didn’t really go that far,” he said. “And then I created Devon Coyote and now I play music with a full band or as a solo act, whatever has to happen.”

The crowd at Bud’s will hear a handful of new songs, along with covers and favourites from their previous album, Blue, Black and Grey. For each original song, there’s a free-flow style that’s easy for anybody to enjoy.

“Think Dave Matthews meets Pearl Jam, John Mayer solos, Ben Harper lap-steel slide guitar, and the salty swagger of Gary Clark Jr.,” reads his online biography.

Those who attended the Invermere MusicFest on Sunday will be familiar with Plastic Acid, who performed an orchestra-style set with only three members. The trio will be opening for Coyote at Bud’s. Tickets for the show are $10 and can be purchased at the door, which opens at 8 p.m.
