Three Americana folk-rock bands play the Green Frog Dec. 20

Joining Vaudeville Etiquette and Wild Rabbit at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20, at the Green Frog, 1015 N. State St, Goodnight, Texas performs in support of their sophomore album “Uncle John Farquhar.”

Goodnight, Texas got their start in San Francisco with core songwriters Patrick Wolf and Avi Vinocur, where the two bonded over a love of wooden instruments and the American South. Wolf moved to North Carolina but the duo continued their cross-country musical collaboration and decided to name the project after the tiny Texas panhandle town of Goodnight, which is the midpoint between their two homes of San Francisco and Chapel Hill.

With their second album, they have written their next installment of their musical anthology making it’s way chronologically and westward through the country’s history. Their first album, “A Long Life of Living,” was inspired by Industrial Revolution stories from the Northeast and the Appalachian Mountains.

Conceptualized as a scrapbook, “Uncle John Farquhar” takes the journey farther south and further along in time, inspired by stories from the Civil War and Reconstruction era. All of the stories told on the records are based on real-life accounts. Details: acoustictavern.com.
