Where do you start when discussing Gurf Morlix? His status as a highly sought producer? His expertise on almost any stringed instrument? His growly baritone that works well as lead or harmony? Name dropping? Gurf has produced, played, sang, and co-written with a veritable hall of fame lineup: Lucinda Williams, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Warren Zevon, Ian McLagan, Patty Griffin, Robert Earl Keen, Michael Penn, Buddy Miller, Mary Gauthier, Tom Russell, Jim Lauderdale and Slaid Cleaves to name but a few. But ultimately, his songwriting is why he appears here. His latest record, Gurf Morlix Finds the Present Tense, is full of heart-piercing stories about regular people. These songs are packed with grit, irony, and social commentary, and accompanied by beautiful melodies and addictive grooves. The production, instrumentation, and singing are top notch, but the songs are the stars and they will shine brightly in our listening room atmosphere.
Doors and potluck at 6 PM, show at 7 PM. $15 suggested donation, but none turned away.
