DAVE ALVIN AND THE GUILTY ONES
“Starting in May 2011, my great band, The Guilty Ones and I hit the highways blasting and rocking our blues in every bar, theatre and joint that we could get into across America. Some of ’em we even hit twice! As you might guess, I love playing with this band and I think it shows in the live performance that was recorded last summer (2011) at The Ark in Ann Arbor. We were in Cincinnati the night before we taped this show, and we were in Chicago the night after, so this is a document of one night (mistakes, sweat and all) traveling down the endless interstate. I’m happy to be able to release this to you on DVD in a new swanky package of Eleven Eleven (expanded edition), complete with three previously unreleased songs from that album’s sessions. I hope you enjoy the music and I look forward to seeing you soon somewhere down the road.”
– Dave Alvin

Alvin’s song “Beautiful City ‘Cross the River” will be featured on FX’s critically-acclaimed series Justified on Tuesday February 21 at 10:00 PM EST. The song, which was recorded in late January, was written specifically for the scene, highlighting a Tex Mex feel.
This is the third time Alvin’s music has been featured on Justified; his song “Harlan County Line,” which was also written and recorded for the program, premiered last season and “Every Night About This Time” was featured on this season’s premiere.
You can get an instant download of “Beautiful City ‘Cross the River” now when you pre-order the Eleven Eleven Expanded Edition.
“Dave Alvin’s music speaks to our show, both melodically and lyrically. We were fortunate enough to have him perform on the show last season, and it was a song that he felt spoke to our characters and the overall attitude of Justified,” said Greg Sill, music supervisor for the show. “He was absolutely spot on. It is a rarity to find an artist who speaks the visceral ‘language’ of a character as well as Dave’s music does with Raylan Givens. Graham Yost (creator/executive producer), Michael Dinner (director/executive producer) and myself decided that Dave’s voice was that of a voice that would be playing in Raylan’s head. Especially when you consider the breadth of our story lines this season. The poignancy is scary, because it’s so real and kind of haunting, but amazingly good. We love you, Dave Alvin.”
