Officials at Embassy Theatre have announced that Southern rockers Whiskey Myers & Friends will be in town for a memorable evening on Friday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.
The genre-bending band will bring a special, stripped-back version of their catalog to fans along with special guests Aaron Raitiere, Adam Hood, and Brent Cobb.
“Everybody wants you to pick a genre, but we did this our whole career,” lead singer Cody Cannon said on the band’s website. “We like it all, so we’re gonna do it all. We’re better than we were at 20 years old — you try to hone your skills and get better, write better, play better. This is just how it came naturally, and it works better that way.”
This is set up to be a pretty cool gig featuring unique versions of songs from the band’s discography, including the critically acclaimed 2022 album Tornillo.
Tickets for go on sale Friday, Sept. 15, at 10 a.m. online at ticketmaster.com and in person at the STAR Bank box office at the Embassy.

Iguana Death Cult are more than a clever name
I don’t care what you say, Iguana Death Cult is an outstanding name for a band. I mean, I really don’t care what they play, the name alone already has my attention.
Come to find out, these Dutch rockers deliver a bold and playfully snarky brand of rock n’ roll that draws from the wells of garage rock, surf rock, old school punk, and indie rock.
The five-piece have been hitting it hard since 2015 and recently released a new album, Echo Palace.
Iguana Death Cult will be in town on Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. for a performance at The Brass Rail. Tickets are only $9 and can be purchased via Eventbrite.
