When Rolling Stone hails your songs as "the perfect recipe for Gothic Americana," you're doing something right.

And Frontier Ruckus is bringing it to Boone on Wednesday, June 1.

Back in the States after a European tour, including from Ireland to Italy and all points in between, the indie Americana band brings its rootsy rhythms to Galileo's Bar & Café.

The Michigan-bred band features Matthew Milia on vocals, guitar, harmonica and pedal steel, David W. Jones on banjo, vocals and dobro, Zachary Nichols on brass, singing-saw, melodica and keyboards, Ryan Etzcorn on drums and percussion, and Brian Barnes on bass guitar and vocals.

According to their bio, "At a young age, the courses of Matthew Milia and David Jones somehow converged within the large and vaguely defined world of Metropolitan Detroit. And from that point on, with merely a banjo and a guitar, they moved forward towards one common creation - something that reflected the very world from which they came with a zeal and vividness afforded only to the young."

Rolling Stone put it simply, "Their songs are full of rich, rural details: Frozen lakes, swaying trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night. Add to the mix baleful brass and trembling percussion, and you've got the perfect recipe for Gothic Americana."
And Galileo's feels it's a perfect recipe for a good time.

Frontier Ruckus performs Wednesday, June 1, at 10 p.m. after a to-be-determined 9 p.m. opener. For ticket prices and more information, call Galileo's (1087 W. King St.) at (828) 865-9591.
