The Clydesdale is an indie band from Las Vegas, Nevada who have grown prominent in the independent Las Vegas alt country and cowpunk community.[1] Their sound is described by Rolling Stone as "bluegrass rock" fit for "the soundtrack to a western directed by Quentin Tarantino."[2] Their members, who perform dressed in western wear, include Paige Overton and her trademark "ever-evolving beehive" hairdo (vocals, guitar), Andrew Karasa, a carpenter who builds his own instruments and once cut his middle finger off with a table saw a mere week before performing with the band (vocals, guitar), Jason Aragon, who co-created Las Vegas' Neon Reverb Music Festival (bass), and Courtney Carroll, who has played in several Las Vegas bands including Venus Diablo (formerly Smurfette's Whorehouse) and Kid Meets Cougar (drums).[2][3][4][5][6]

In 2013, the band celebrated the release of their album The Trail of the Painted Pony when they performed at Las Vegas' Neon Reverb music festival with Coastwest Unrest, who also released a new album at the event. [7][8] The band is currently working on a self-produced LP due out sometime in 2015.[9]
