Spokane's Tim 'Too Slim' Langford has compiled a list of awards longer than the tail his band --'The Taildraggers' -- have been dragging around since their formation in 1986.

In their 30-plus years or recording and playing every joint around, the Taildraggers have released 13 studio albums, five live albums and pocketed the Washington State Blues Society's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

Always a crowd-pleaser, they will be headlining the entertainment on the Legends Casino and Hotel stage this Thursday night on historic North Front Street in Yakima for another installment of Downtown Summer Nights, powered by Stewart Subaru.

Opening act Chase Craig, out of West Pasco, will set the table with some alternative soul and vintage blues fusion of his own.

This family-friendly event is free and open to all ages (and pet friendly, too!) Music plays from 6-9 p.m.
