Joe Purdy is more aptly described as a troubadour. Purdy understands that his own live music tradition, has as much to do with commanding captivated, pin-drop silence as it does prompting roars, (which it most definitely has), because in those hushed moments, a solemn and crystal-clear voice, the resonance of acoustic guitar strings into the reverberant din of a music hall, his stories are being heard.
Brian Wright is an LA favorite with a unique songwriting perspective he describes as “somewhere between Velvet Underground and Woody Guthrie.” Having played every instrument on his most recent album House on Fire(Sugar Hill), the collection of songs brings the driving sound of a cross-country bound train heading for either heartache or redemption. Wright has taken the album on the road with tireless tours across the US and Europe and will open tonight’s show with his rollicking band composed of some of LA’s best musicians.
