Whitey Morgan & the 78’s

Lumpkin Street Station owner Bryan Gay and his crew are wasting no time getting into the thick of things in the former Green Room space, hosting a Flagpole-recommended gig right off the bat. Hulking songwriter and guitarist Whitey Morgan and his band hail from Flint, MI, but Morgan’s two studio outings with The 78’s—2008’s Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels and 2010’s self-titled Bloodshot LP—as well as the solo effort Grandpa’s Guitar and the live LP Born, Raised & LIVE From Flint, are rich with the sweet sounds of Texarkana. Morgan’s honky tonk acumen is no joke, nor is it laced with any irony whatsoever. His upcoming fifth album, Sonic Ranch, is said to be his best yet.
