Talented duo calling it quits with final show
Bad Scout, that “smooth as Southern sippin’ liquor” band from Chattanooga, is giving their farewell performance on Friday, Mar. 6 at The Camp House. The band (once described by a particularly charming reviewer as, “The musical equivalent of The Dude abiding”) has garnered its fair share of love in the last year, but with one half of the founding duo moving to Nashville and the other on deck to get married, the fellas felt like the time was right for Bad Scout to perform its swan song*.
It’s a shame to see such a talented group disband, but the split is completely amicable. Cody Ray and Jonathan Williams both speak glowingly of their writing partnership and are rightfully proud of the work they accomplished together, but all good things (they say) must come to an end.
It is certain that whatever project each of the gentlemen—and indeed, the rest of the band members—embarks on next is going to be worthwhile. In the meantime, spend a final night with one of the few bands to capture the genuine Southern culture experience and while you’re at it, pick up a T-shirt and a CD.
