Slim Cessna’s Auto Club 2023 Tour

Slim Cessna's Auto Club 2023 Tour

Wallace Stenger may have captured the spirit of the west in his 1971 novel Angle of Repose. Jim Thompson surely exposed the lurid underbelly of the Western experience. Cormac McCarthy definitely evoked the conflicted, tortured spirit of small town life on the frontier. William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor informed all of them with a humor and soulfulness. It is that literary tradition that imbues the harrowing and celebratory sound and riveting stories of Slim Cessna’s Auto Club. Throughout its long and illustrious history, it is largely in that realm of art that the Auto Club reveled and garnered a loyal cult following well beyond the boundaries of The Queen City of the Plains. And upcoming is Slim Cessna’s Auto Club 2023 Tour.

Slim Cessna's Auto Club 2023 TourSlim Cessna’s Auto Club was originally formed in 1992 in Denver, Colorado do by its namesake after he parted ways with The Denver Gentlemen, that grand progenitor of the peculiar strain of Gothic Americana unique to the Mile High City that also featured Jeffrey-Paul and David Eugene Edwards who’d go on to form 16 Horsepower, the latter then founding Wovenhand. Slim’s longest running collaborators in the Auto Club have been Munly Munly and Lord Dwight Pentacost who’ve contributed both material and affected the ensemble’s stylistic vision. More recently there’ve been greater creative contributions from longtime collaborator Rebecca Vera, drummer Andrew Warner and now the inclusion of Slim’s son George Cessna on bass.

When you get to see the Auto Club live, you’ll see an already mighty band reinvigorated by a new spirit of excitement as well as by the fire that has long burned in its collective belly. We’re excited to have them in Europe next summer, first dates announced now:
