I’ve been a huge fan of Gary Clark JR every since we stumbled upon him at Voodoo Music Festival a few years ago in New Orleans. Clark’s blend of bluesy fuzzy guitar mixed with smooth vocals is simply amazing. I’m surprised I hadn’t ever come across him while living in Austin, as he was born and raised there, honing his musical chops in iconic locations like Antone’s. His recent album Black and Blu is an absolute delight and I highly recommend it.
Clark came through Tahoe South a few months (okay 6) ago while on tour opening for Dave Matthews Band. It was nice to have a bit of my hometown in my [new] hometown.
