What the hell is goin’ on? After jumping out of airplanes and a short career as a professional boxer, Paul Thorn out of Mississippi hung up his ‘mitts’ and his jungle boots for a life of southern-roots, B.B. King style blues rock. Thorn has received national as well as international attention after breaking into the Billboard Charts Top 100. His elaborate lyricism and well-crafted story telling have branded him with the title, “Mark Twain of America.” Thorn is sure to perform songs of his recently released, cover album, What the Hell is Goin’ On which features songs by artists such as: Buddy Miller, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Wild Bill Emerson. You know what’s really cool about Paul Thorn? He’s willing to sell you a limited-edition Paul Thorn lunchbox that contains not only What The Hell Is Goin’ On in CD format, but a copy of The Paul Thorn Band Bootleg Tapes 2011 CD. A lunchbox! Just like your old collectible Mickey Mouse American bicentennial one from the 70s! Chicago pop band Josh & The Empty Pockets open.
