D. Striker will be playing at JJ's Bohemia on Thursday, July 17, with Big Kitty.  The Chattanooga show is a part of a tour in support of D. Striker's new album, Come Over Here.

Review for D. Striker:

There are 13 tracks on the album. A few highlights: "Three Dudes In An Office" questions the sincerity of chest-thumping country boys singing redneck odes penned by Music Row office writers. The song "She Don't Want Me (She Just Wants Attention)" finds the song's narrator baffled by a woman who blows up his phone with text messages but cannot give him attention in person. And "Come Over Here (If You Wanna Get Down)" is a slinky invitation with horns and disco beat to, well, get down. 

A video for the song "Country Dance Off" also appears on the album. The video loosely follows the story of the time D. Striker infiltrated the Country Dance World's Championships at the Opryland Hotel.  They shot it on location.

Roy Exum: He’s Exempt From Drunk

I love the old story about a popular Senator who, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was asked late one evening, “Sir, what if we get bombed?” to which came the quick reply, “I’d be absolutely delighted … I can get one of my aides to drive us home afterwards.” You think of stuff like that when word comes from Kentucky that state legislator Brandon Smith was caught driving erratically ...
