A Case of the Fridays - Thanksgiving Edition
Bluesman Bobby Parker will help you get your holiday blues on this Saturday, November 28th at Madam’s Organ in Adams Morgan. With stinging guitar licks and years of experience playing and touring with musicians such as Bo Diddley, Sam Cooke and Chuck Berry, the blues are in his bones, and you can hear it when he plays and when he sings. Born in Lousiana, but a DC-area resident now, check him out above at a Madam’s Organ gig a year ago.
For a folkier sound, check out Elvis Perkins in Dearland at the Rock & Roll Hotel in Washington, DC, Wednesday, December 2nd. With a haunted voice, Perkins and his small band of multi-instrumentalists create beautiful Americana with an air of darkness.
