Music: Heartless Bastards

Heartless Bastards make their official tour stop in the area tonight at the Madison Theater promoting their latest album, The Mountain. The band played a couple of holiday shows at Northside Tavern just before releasing the CD, but tonight should be a real old-fashioned concert.

Things obviously are going well for the Bastards, capped off by their appearance last month on Late Night With David Letterman. Dave introduced them as a band from Austin, Tex., which is their new home base, but both Erika Wennerstrom and Jesse Ebaugh told him they were from Cincinnati, which Dave blew off.

The Mountain has received glowing reviews in Rolling Stone, Spin and Entertainment Weekly, and the Bastards were profiled in a cover story in Austin's venerable alt weekly, the Chronicle.
