A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of telling you about country phenom D. Striker from Nashville, and promised that I’d offer a heads up when he came to town.
The time is upon us, kids.
On Thursday, July 17, Striker takes the stage at JJ’s Bohemia, along with the Clark Williams project Big Kitty and local roots band Broke Down Hound.
If you missed it the first time around, Striker composes and performs old-school country music (New Old Stock, perhaps?) and is essentially the cure for everything that’s wrong with modern country music.
No cookie-cutter Nashville machine music here; Striker features driving rhythms, clean licks and honest lyrics that are poignant, not schmaltzy.
Between the golden age country of Striker, the mellifluous harmonies of Big Kitty and the good ol’ down-home roots rock and Americana of Broke Down Hound, it should be one hell-raising, honky-tonkin’ night.
Be there or live with the consequences of being perpetually reminded of what a brilliant show you missed by the folks who had the good sense to show up.
