Kristi Rose and Pulp Country at Third & Lindsley 

Rose by Any Other Name

Rose by Any Other Name
At the helm of her hillbilly-noir band Pulp Country, Kristi Rose has a voice like Patsy Cline’s saloonkeeper cousin and the mad-bad-and-dangerous-to-know presence of a Jim Thompson femme fatale. Her brand of souped-up honky-tonk comes from a neck of the woods where T-men fear to tread and the gators are well-fed: When she sings Bobbie Gentry’s “Ode to Billy Joe,” she makes it sound like she doesn’t just know what Billy Joe McAllister threw off the Tallahatchee Bridge, she pitched him right in after it. Of late, Rose has been trading vocals with Chris Mitchell in Jim Hoke and Randy Leago’s Aqua Velvet side project; she shares a bill with Mitchell and the Connection tonight in her first Nashville Pulp Country show in three years.
