Smith/McKay All Day

Jimmy Smith (right), formerly of the Gourds, fronts the two-piece Smith/McKay All Day, playing in Billings on May 11. 

Smith/McKay All Day (featuring Jimmy Smith of The Gourds), 6 p.m. May 11 at Yellowstone Valley Brewing, 2123 First Ave. N. General admission/all ages performance. $8 in advance or day-of.

Ex-Gourds co-frontman Jimmy Smith and bluesman Pat McKay are described as a two-man band that's as full as a four-piece with drum stomping, guitar banging and vocalizing "old Gourd, HardPans, Slo-Red faves and whatever's on the Smitty madness menu this week."

Smith is best-known as one of the two principal songwriters and bass player for famed Austin alt-country outfit The Gourds, a group he was a part of for two decades.
