There are plenty of country music fans in Seattle. Two commercial radio stations and a sold out Kenny Chesney show at CenturyLink Field in June are enough proof of that.

What the area lacks is a strong contingent of homegrown country acts, which is a shame given that country is one of the most popular genres of music in America — yes, even in Seattle. One local band carrying the torch for country fans is Trainwreck, out of Stanwood, Wash.

These guys aren’t full-time musicians but don’t let that stop you from checking them out at the Hard Rock Cafe tonight. They play an appealing brand of country that veers toward the southern rock side things and usually play a combination of their own tunes and some covers.

Frightened Rabbit.

Frightened Rabbit.

While it might seem like a weird mix, Scottish navel gazers Frightened Rabbit will play an acoustic set starting at 5 p.m., with Jesse Taylor going on at 9 p.m. and Trainwreck closing things out.

The Frightened Rabbit portion of the evening is free. The band was chosen as Hard Rock’s September “Artist of the Month” and will be donating memorabilia to Hard Rock’s collection.

Frightened Rabbit/Trainwreck with Jesse Taylor
5 p.m. for Frightened Rabbit/9 p.m. for Trainwreck at the Hard Rock Cafe, 116 Pike St., Seattle; $10 adv, $13 dos (www.hardrock.com or 206-204-2233)
