Music like Goodnight, Texas
Goodnight, Texas is an American folk rock band named after the town of Goodnight, Texas, the geographic midpoint between the working locations of songwriters Avi Vinocur (formerly of The Stone Foxes) in San Francisco and Patrick Dyer Wolf in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The band has performed in the tiny town of Goodnight three times as of 2017.
The group's debut album A Long Life of Living was released October 2, 2012 via Tallest Man Records. On the day before its international release, the band hand delivered CD copies of their debut album to every citizen in Goodnight. The album received praise from press and the blogosphere, garnering comparisons to such diverse acts as Levon Helm, Bruce Springsteen, Elliott Smith and Punch Brothers. Their single, "Jesse Got Trapped In a Coal Mine," premiered on the renowned folk music site American Songwriter in August 2012. A performance of the song premiered exclusively on BAMM.TV shortly thereafter.
