Photos + Review | JD McPherson + Dylan Pratt @ The Sinclair

Photos by Boston Concert Photography On Wednesday, March 4th us winter-weary Boston folks got a much needed southern heatwave in the form of JD McPherson and his band of rhythm and blues brothers. The jet stream pulled the rockabilly currents directly from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, right through the doors of the Sinclair, to create a hip-twisting tornado of guitar-fueled energy. McPherson shimmied and shook across the stage as though he had been possessed by Elvis himself, while Jimmy Sutton (upright bass), Jason Smay (drums), Ray Jacildo (keys), and Doug Corcoran (saxophone/guitar) kept the rock n’ roll storm swirling around the…

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPkAQUyNIus[/youtube]

Oklahoma’s JD McPherson is readying the release of his sophomore album, Let The Good Times Roll, out February 10th on Rounder Records, and has just announced his US tour dates for February and March. To celebrate what will surely be a great start to the new year JD and his band performed a beautiful version of “How Insensitive” on the newest episode of “Time Well Spent With People Worth Knowing.” Featuring the incomparable vocals of Nashville musician Nikki Lane, the timeless jazz standard reaches new levels of heartbreak.

We are huge fans of JD McPherson and Nikki Lane so you can bet that we were super excited to be able to share this live recording with you all. Speaking of live, take a look at the the tour dates listed below and be sure to make it to the show when JD and his band hit your town. For us Bostonians we get to see them at the great Cambridge venue The Sinclair on March 4th. Be there!

New Music | JD McPherson – Bossy

A new tune from favorite, JD McPherson, would definitely perk my ears up a bit, and when I hit play, out shoots a driving, pounding, breathy blues roots track that I totally fell in love with. It’s got a raw, pure feeling to it, like it came out of his guitar on it’s own. It may be more of McPherson’s interpretation of blues-roots, but it feels more authentically his versus a retro-style. Either way, I’m in love, and it’s only whetting my appetite for more. Look for McPherson’s new record, Let the Good Times Roll, out in February on Rounder…

Pickathon 2013 @ Pendarvis Farm (PDX)

Photos by inger klekacz [T]he first year I went to Pickathon, I accidentally disturbed a bee nest while pitching my tent, and was stung three times while getting chased out of the area. The second year I went to Pickathon, I pitched my tent on a hill, neglecting to put up the rain fly. I was awakened by rain around 2am on day 3, and as I rushed to put the rainfly up, I tripped on the tent’s threshold and took a tumble down the hill, in the dark, in the rain, in my underwear, onto the world’s unluckiest fern.…
