Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland, OH
Should the thought of rock n’ roll’s demise -- or even worse, its maddening mediocrity --have ever crossed your mind, let us introduce you to Chuck Prophet. Now, there are some requirements. You should probably dig Bob Dylan and Lou Reed and the Glimmer Twins. You should probably like a little bit of country and soul mixed into your rock n’roll (again, we’ll invoke Jagger-Richards). You should like brains, humor, hope, and desperations. Because all of these things, friends, can be found on Chuck Prophet’s latest, Temple Beautiful, his love letter/movie themes to his home of San Francisco. Don’t keep reading. Just buy your tickets already. Opening we’ve got up-and-coming blue-rock dudes Welshly Arms, direct from Cleveland.
