Event description

Description

First, before the words, watch the man and listen.

"Break My Heart Sweetly" on Colbert

A trio of songs on NPR. (this will be the duo configuration for the show)

"I Need You to Tell Me Who I Am"

"Slow Down Easy"

"Cherokee"

Doors at 7. Show at 8. Bring what you'd like to drink and eat.

The replay of John Moreland's network television debut is…glorious and affirming and a sucker punch. He is announced by Stephen Colbert, lights dissolve, and the camera slowly focuses on the person midway across the unadorned stage, revealing him beneath muted blue lights.

He is a big man.

Seated, alone, cradling his acoustic guitar.

He looks like nobody who is famous.

Then he begins to sing, to caress the song "Break My Heart Sweetly," and all that remains is to whisper, "Oh, my god."

His latest, "Big Bad Luv," is unmistakably a rock 'n' roll record. If, that is, one understands the term to include Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Hiatt, and Lucero. Or The Band, maybe. Insistent songs, coming from a voice as elegant as unfinished barn wood, songs which insist upon their words being heard.
