I finally got the opportunity to see Nikki Lane play live, over two years after her record All Or Nothin’ was in constant rotation on my iPod. She delivered a solid set to a Chicago crowd that was ready to hear some outlaw country. Lane sang a mix of originals and Waylon Jennings covers, announced herself as a big shit-talker, and became the first person I’ve ever heard use the “C” word on stage. The band was tight, probably could’ve played another two hours and the audience would’ve stayed all night. They’re playing in Chicago again tonight at Beat Kitchen.
