Cosmic Country Showcase
Cosmic Country Showcase
Do you pine for the classic entertainment found only on old country television shows like Grand Ole Opry and Hee Haw? Well, look no further. The Hideout and 312unes have got you covered with what may be the most out-there show you’ll see this year— the Cosmic Country Showcase.
Dougie Poole
Dougie Poole
Dougie Poole is an eclectic singer, songwriter and musician living in New York. Having come of age in Providence, RI admiring local bands like Downtown Boys and Lightning Bolt, he spent years crafting heavier, louder, more dissonant music before turning his focus to country songwriting.

On Wideass Highway, Doug writes earnestly about real life experiences: heartbreak and loss in the digital age, skittish and uncertain psychedelic drug use, life in and in-between cities, his relationships with computers and also people. He rearranges familiar country sounds and structures in an attempt to approach the genre as an experimental, forward-looking music form, rather than one that glorifies tradition (be it aesthetic, social, or political). He wonders: can music so firmly rooted in the past offer valuable insight and comfort in a growing and evolving America? Can country music function as a Trojan horse for progressive ideals more often associated with punk and hip-hop?

When he isn’t playing music Doug spends a lot of time watching TV and reading Twitter, in addition to working as a professional handler of very fancy art and as a professional truck driver delivering vegan spreads.

"Bunny toes the bleary line between dream pop and bedroom rock. Their tunes take on a soft grunge feel, mixing dainty, pretty melodies with hazy, sardonic lyrics and juxtaposing the music with a dramatic stage presence."-Your Mom
