Three Day Threshold bring the Rodeo to Boston

Three Day Threshold’s album release celebration on Saturday, reads as follows: “The band didn’t have enough gas money to drive everyone we knew down to a real honky-tonk, so we thought we’d bring the honky-tonk up here.” What they’re bringing includes a mechanical bull, free BBQ from Redbones, and enough whiskey fueled country-rock to turn even the most hardcore New Englander into a good ole’ country boy. “The whole night revolved around the idea of ‘Hey, let’s get us a bull,’” explains lead singer Kier Byrnes, “and we found the perfect place, the Cambridge Elks Lodge, which is basically the ultimate old man bar. Cheap beer, cheap booze, sawdust on the floor kind of place.” That is exactly the kind of place one would expect to hear the music of Three Day Threshold, but to find that place in Boston may be a bit of a surprise to some folks. “I’m originally from New Hampshire, so there’s some hillbilly cred right there,” Byrnes justifies. “I grew up in between two farms and classic rock and country rock battled it out.” On Three Day Threshold’s latest release, Against the Grain, that battle has turned into a beautiful alliance. Tracks like “Whiskey, You’re the Devil” and “Kelly, I’m Coming Over” effectively combine hints of country, rock, Celtic music, and bluegrass, among other flavors. Other songs travel further down specific roads, making Against the Grain much more than the sum of its parts. “We’re so psyched about it. It took a lot of work, but we had a lot of fun and I couldn’t be more happy about an album,” says Byrne. One song that is getting its fair share of support is “Ghost of Jimmy Ryan.” What first appears to be a cold-hearted song about a murder is actually a Boston scene in-joke. “It’s actually an ode to Jimmy Ryan, who is a mandolin player here in Boston,” explains Byrnes. “He’s one of my musical idols and I wrote a song about the death of him. It’s sort of an inside joke, but he’s happy with it.” Three Day Threshold may soon be looking at more than the Boston scene. They’ve recently been asked to play in New Mexico, and with their new label Hi-N-Dry (former home to Morphine) the band has added national support. The band also provided soundtrack music for several MTV shows including Road Rules, Real World, and The Gauntlet, as well as FOX’s The Simple Life. On the local level the band is part of a sort of Southern resurgence in the Boston area. They are good friends with Girls, Guns, and Glory and Cassavettes. In fact, they are playing Cassavettes birthday party at the Middle East on July 7. “There’s a nice little community we have going, and it’s nice because we’re working together rather than separate,” says Byrnes.
