Dave Alvin, appearing on Mountain Stage November 20
Even more live show news, folks.
The 2011 Mountain Stage schedule continues to take shape with the addition of Dave Alvin & the Guilty Ones, at the Clay Center on November 20.
A true icon of roots music, this will mark Dave Alvin’s 6th appearance on Mountain Stage. From his early work with his brother in The Blasters, to his eclectic career as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Alvin has had richly varied musical path. After The Blasters, Alvin was briefly the lead guitarist for seminal L.A. Punk Band X before releasing a series of solo albums in the 80’s and 90’s that are widely regarded as classics.
In 1989, Alvin scored a hit when he penned the Dwight Yoakam chart topper “Long White Cadillac” – an accomplishment that now seems like a footnote with Alvin’s career is viewed as a whole. His latest album, Eleven Eleven, takes Alvin back to his electric side. You can hear previews from the release via his website.
Alvin will be joined Catherine Russell and Catie Curtis, with other artists TBA. Tickets go on sale October 17 at 10 a.m. – you can get yours online at theclaycenter.org, by phone (304.561.3570) or in person at the Clay Center box office.
The show starts at 7. Stay tuned for more information about this show (and others) as it becomes available. See you there.
