Bushwick seems to be getting more and more middling operations that eschew the slickness of places like Williamsburg Hall of Music but are nevertheless a foot above the gritty underground DIY venues that are becoming a thing of memory. This Thursday night, when brand new dive bar and venue Gold Sounds has its grand opening party (pssst– with FREE booze), you can add one more to the pile of bar/venues like Alphaville and Sunnyvale.
“Boots and buckles, red clay and sand. My point ain’t subtle. I’m a southern man,” are the opening lines to The Cadillac Three’s song “The South,” a country-meets-rock tune you might just catch if you stop by their upcoming show at The Shop. A country show in Bushwick might seem as out of place as plaid at a black-tie event, but Dan Lyle, owner of the newish barbecue joint, thinks it “makes people feel like they’re home.”
Hailing from one of the great kingdoms of music, Nashville, The Cadillac Three has been described as “Lynyrd Skynyrd meets Dierks Bentley.” They’ve toured with country star Jake Owen, have written songs for him and others like Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, and their song “I’m Rockin’” is on the Madden NFL 16 soundtrack.

“Boots and buckles, red clay and sand. My point ain’t subtle. I’m a southern man,” are the opening lines to The Cadillac Three’s song “The South,” a country-meets-rock tune you might just catch if you stop by The Shop this Saturday.
“I grew up doing a lot of country boy shit and I know how to do it well,” said Dan Lyle, chef and owner of The Shop Brooklyn, a barbecue joint that reopens in its new Bushwick location this weekend with a three-day blowout. Working summers at his aunt and uncle’s pig farm in Indiana and barbecuing throughout his childhood in St. Louis, Lyle knows “how to deal with fire” and brought in chefs to compliment his “Texas with a twist” barbecue.
