Cult Country from San Diego, CA
Performing on the Carnivale Main Stage in 2017
Imagine if Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson and George Carlin got drunk on whiskey and started a country band, then you might get the inspiration for Clint Westwood's music. He is a veteran performer, songwriter and recording artist best known for his role as the booze soaked bass smashing, banjo bashing co-front man of the pirate gypsy ska band Whiskey Avengers. With a few solo records under his belt he is now unleashing his self branded ‘Cult Country’ style onto barflies, hussies, hipsters and rug-cutters around the world. It’s a hodgepodge of authentic American roots music with a southwestern edge littered with literary lyrical prose that will leave you stomping, swashbuckling, and laughing maniacally while punching holes in the wall. Clint Westwood is what happens when punk rock grows a beard and grabs a banjo but doesn’t grow up. Many musical projects have taken him across the ponds to Europe and Japan as well as many journeys around the United States. He’s seen some shit and is not afraid to tell it like it is, and it isn’t looking good, so might was well have a good time and sing along with your new favorite April Fool. Welcome to Cult Country.
