Yardsale, the self-proclaimed second most rootin’-est, tootin’-est band in Louisville, lives by a simple philosophy: the more things change, the more they get different. Through three wildly diverse albums (2005's Yardsale, 2006's Moving in Reverse and 2007's Electric Western), the band evolved - until one day they looked up from their western wear and realized they had not only broken the Olympic record for late-night tacos devoured, but had also created a cool new, alt-country-meets-pop sound - the kind of sound one might hear if Gram Parsons fronted the Heartbreakers. On the strength of live favorites such as the stomping country sound of "Dream of Amarillo" and the heartfelt ballad "While She Sleeps," Yardsale continues to raise the bar and raise the roof in venues in and around Louisville, and in 2008 released a live EP, Yardsale This Week. So what’s next? The group just finished recording a new album, Knock Alley West, and added a horn section. They'll be following that up with some regional touring and undisputed rock 'n' roll legend status. Or at least another beer.
